Women and Wine

For all the exponentially growing popularity of wine, one topic still doesn’t receive the attention it deserves: The increasing importance of women in the industry. From winemakers to vineyard managers to owners of huge corporations that produce and market wine, women are making a serious mark on an industry that for too long a time was generally the provenance of men.

An article in yesterday’s Vancouver Sun, while it focuses specifically on Canadian women in the business, highlights the overall importance of women to the wine world as a whole. Take a look at the complete article right here, and then, maybe, pop the cork on a bottle of wine produced by, say, Merry Edwards (above), or any of a number of top-notch female winemakers, and toast all they’ve done for the juice we love so much.
