Women of the Vine Global Symposium - SOLD OUT
Napa, CA
Event Type: Seminars and Classes,Trade Tasting/Fair
Description: The Women of the Vine Global Symposium is for today’s enterprising women in the wine industry, it is their passion for their careers in wine that both defines them and unites them.

It is the first of its kind two-day trade event enabling women across all sectors of the wine industry and across the globe to connect, network, mentor, collaborate and support each other.

The Symposium will feature keynote speakers, panel discussions, seminars, special guest hosted luncheons and a Grand Tasting Gala. The educational programs will include such topics as; trends in on and off-premise sales, finding mentors, inheriting the family business, succession plans, etc.

Our Purpose:

The Women of the Vine Global Symposium uncovers some of the personal, family and business dynamics of today’s women in wine, but this is not a symposium about gender.

The Symposium aims to provide tangible strategies to help women further their careers within the ever-changing wine world. If you are seeking to hone your business skills, gather fresh ideas and network with other like-minded women in the wine industry, this is a must attend annual event.

Why a Gender-Specific Program?

The world of wine is neither a man’s world nor a woman’s world; the patterns of access or exclusion have followed the local cultural norms or acted as a signs of the times as women’s roles have waxed and waned. But now, as we enter a true Golden Age for wines, women are increasingly visible as leaders in every aspect of wine growing, wine making, buying, distributing, marketing, sales, educators, sommeliers, wine writers and so much more. In addition, more and more women are bringing wine to the table to share with family and friends.

"There is a strong need for such a forum as there is a shortage on mentor/networking opportunities for women despite the large numbers that hold top spots across the industry. I am anxious to be a part of this group and look forward to making the inaugural event a huge success, " Jayne Portnoy, Vice President of Marketing & Brand Strategy at Napa Technology
