Women Wine Vintners

Women have broken down doors in many male dominated professions. This is especially true in the wine industry. However, it has not been an easy path. In Europe, where the people are bent on tradition, a woman would only gain control of a winery when widowed or when there were no sons for inheritance. In the United States, a woman not only has to be educated and hard working but also needs to excel in winemaking to become recognized. As a result many of the wines made by woman today top the charts, earn high scores and tend to be expensive. Just look at Heidi Peterson Barrett. She is the only person (male or female) to ever receive four perfect 100 scores for her wines from Robert Parker, a highly acclaimed wine critic. Why is it that we have to work so much harder than our male counterparts?

To learn more about the struggles and achievements of women vintners, join us on Thursday, June 10, 2010 at Lenfell Hall at the Madison Campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University from 6-8:30 PM. You will not want to miss this learn and laugh evening. Sponsored by the Garden State Woman Education Foundation, the networking and wine tasting event will be a fundraiser for the Foundation. Conducting the tasting will be Independent Wine Consultant, Maria Baniel. Maria has an extensive knowledge of all aspects of wine making. Maria has selected wines from California, Argentina and Italy made by incredible women vintners.
