DETAILS: The wine industry, both in production and distribution, has long been a male-dominated industry. This has slowly been changing over the last few decades. As more and more women take up positions of respect and authority in the wine industry it is changing the business of wine and how wine is consumed.
This year’s Portland Wine Week is proud to include a Women in Wine Track and to open the week’s festivities with a Women in Wine Panel Discussion moderated by Amy Traverso of Yankee Magazine.
This panel is composed of women from Portland and across the United States and Europe, who have push the boundaries and found ways to create their own places in the world of wine.
Join us on Monday, June 17, from 10-12 pm at the Falmouth Country Club to kick-off Portland Wine Week with an insightful discussion on what it’s like being a woman in the wine industry and how these women claimed their spot in this evolving industry.
