Women in Wine

Women in the wine industry

I went to a wine tasting the other day, organized by a local restaurant, featuring a visiting wine expert from San Francisco.  The wines were all provided by our friend Warren, (read a few of Warren’s musings – http://www.asharpeye.com/2010/08/rioja/, http://www.asharpeye.com/2011/06/more-musings-from-our-favorite-wine-informant/, http://www.asharpeye.com/2010/05/bottoms-up/) and we focused on champagnes, rosé and some white wines.  The wine expert was a woman and she talked a little bit about what got her interested in wine, and how the number of women in the wine industry is increasing every year.

A few days later I read a small article in MORE magazine about their wine club, MORE Uncorked which is the only wine club delivering wines made exclusively by women vintners.  Until recently, the wine club focused only on California wines made by women vintners, but has recently gone global, offering wines from around the world made by women vintners.

A report written a year ago found that the enrollment in the well known Department of Viticulture and Enology graduate program at the University of California, once dominated by men, had increased to 45 percent women.

You'll always know what we know & where we go. How fabulous is that?
