female Women-Led

We love elevating our favorite female entrepreneurs, especially when it means great wine for us! 

Women are leading the way in the wine industry, challenging old norms and looking towards a brighter, more inclusive future. As of today, however, women only make up 10% of winemakers and only 4% of winery owners in California. We still have a lot of work to do, and supporting women-led wineries with our purchasing power is a great way to lean into more equal opportunities for all. 

Shop women-led wineries below, and you’re sure to find something you’ll love! 

P.S. Did you know that women have more tastebuds than men and are evolutionally better at identifying aromas? Next time you lean into your favorite woman-crafted wine, notice their attention to detail. It’s incredible!
