"Women may be blazing trails to corner offices and government seats, but there is another industry, far away from the corporate world, where women are also making their mark: the vineyard. The world of wine is a traditionally male-dominated industry, with some old-world wineries dating back as far as 26 generations to the 14th century and beyond. And while feminism may have made leaps and bounds of progress since the wine world's inception, evolution isn't always fast-paced, especially in settings where traditions are cherished and passed down, unchanged, from generation to generation.
But just as successful women are breaking glass ceilings in boardrooms everywhere, a trailblazing group of female winemakers is paving the way for future generations of women in wine—though they would probably dislike being labeled as such: "First and foremost, we are all winemakers," Kerith Overstreet, proprietor of Bruliam Wines told MyDomaine. "We're not just female winemakers but awesome, talented, hardworking winemakers, whose wine stands tall because it's damn good wine, whether crafted by a man or a woman." -GABRIELLE SAVOIE
