women in wine

Women have been making wine for centuries, but it wasn’t until recently that they began to receive the recognition they deserve.

Women winemakers are now responsible for some of the most acclaimed wines in the world, and their accomplishments are helping to break down barriers in the male-dominated world of wine. Women-owned wineries are also on the rise, offering visitors a chance to sample wines made by talented female vintners.
