Honestly, I dislike positive/negative profiling, so ‘women wine-makers‘ at least as a concept, grouping or genre has always seemed odd to me, because the job-title wine-maker is in itself sexless. I’ll give you that from a historical perspective, women winemakers are clearly in the minority – yet that is also ‘so last century…‘
That said, I’ll still take these infos on-board if it brings useful new names; Claude-Emmanuelle and Mee I’ve already visited – so now I’ll have to look out for Sonja, even if I already know the (brilliant) wines!
There are 2 responses to “ladies of beaujolais…”
In the Napa Valley,we have Genevieve Janssen X W/M at Robert Mondavi who has here own label,a
Bordeaux blend which is superb,reasonably priced unlike many here and Kathy Corison of Corison Wines who is a the same level
Those of us not “in the loop” do not know of Claude-Emanuelle, Mee, or Sonya – please complete your citations with the names of their wines (& your evaluations, s’il vous plait).
Brian, the two are cited are in my Beaujolais reporting in the April/May reports.
