Why Big Red Diary?

ladies of beaujolais…


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!

    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).

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
