Why buy from women in wine?
We’d like to say wine was an equal playing field. But sadly, when it comes to making our favourite drop, the gender gap is profound – and closing it has been painstakingly slow.
There’s no issue with attracting women into a wine career in Australia. Half of all graduates coming out with oenology degrees from universities are women! But staying and forging a career is tough. And female representation in senior winemaking and viticulture roles remains woefully low. A mere 10%.
When you purchase your wine through The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society your order goes direct to the producer. Rather than give your dollars to big retailers here your purchase makes a difference and can help a woman in wine thrive in her career!
