Equity & Inclusion

Cellar Muse recognizes the historic exclusion of BIPOC and Women from the mainstream wine industry and the resulting economic and cultural impacts.  We are actively working to change both the contemporary opportunities available to these communities, as well as how we understand and talk about the history of our industry.

Facing History - Systemic Exclusion of Women and BIPOC in American Wine


Cellar Muse is dedicated to diversity in wine, and we are calling on our industry partners to join us in the effort! 

Cellar Muse is seeking sponsors for students who wish to further their education and reach their professional goals in the Pacific Northwest.

Local Importers, Distributors, Producers, Restaurants and Retailers are encouraged to inquire.


Our sponsorship goal for 2022 is to award a scholarship for the FRENCH WINE SCHOLAR  this winter to BIPOC students in wine.  We need your help to make that a reality!

Cellar Muse also offers scholarship opportunities for Study Trips! 

Please email Tanya to begin your investment in a more diverse, inclusive wine industry in our region.

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 free 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.
