WINE AND SEXISM
The liquor Industry, including winemaking, over the years has been male dominated. In some sectors it still is particularly in corporates with male executives taking up most of the key positions. Hopefully this will change.
In winemaking though there have been pleasant changes over the years with some of the best wines being made by women e.g Fiona Donald from Australia, Lalou Bize-Leroy from Burgundy, the Faller women from Alsace, Coralie Pignalelli della Leonessa from Tuscany, Helen Turley from California and our own Jules Taylor and Michelle Richardson from New Zealand.
More power to them and keep making wine sexy!
