Women In Wine


Since early wine history, women have been systematically excluded from power. Yet despite the barriers to their participation, tenacious women have been making their mark on the narrative of wine since it was first discovered.  


This webinar examines the lessons of those strong-willed women, particularly those involved in winemaking, and the business and marketing of wine. Their historic experiences provide us insight into contemporary challenges and inform a path forward to create a more equitable and dynamic world of wine.
