The wine industry has predominatley been dominated by men. Historically, it was largely due to the lack of women's rights to own property.  Some women did rise to run wineries after the passing of their fathers or husbands.

Known endearingly as The Widow Cliquot, her title remains Veuve Cliquot, the name that graces a well-known wine house. Barbe-Nicole Clicquot was the first woman to run a champagne house. She took over her family wine business when she was just 27 years old after her husband died.  She brought the family wine house to a new level and led it into one of the most renowned champagne houses in the world. Adding to her achievements, she made the first vintage wine from a landmark harvest of 1810. She also created the first modern pink champagne by adding red wine.

Madame Clicquot truly paved the way for women in wine.

Join us on March 15 to sip and savour some modern day female winemakers.   We will showcase various reds, whites, sparklings and Roses produced from around the world by women making a mark in the wine industry.  Hear the stories about them as told by our wine representatives who will be pouring that night. 

We will provide some light nibbles to enjoy with the wines, and stories. 

So, let's dress up and show up to celebrate Women in Wine!
