Guest speaker Jean-Charles Boisset will focus his presentation on Boisset’s Wine Ambassador program, a new entrepreneurial platform that allows participants to earn income by marketing a collection of limited-production wines and home accessories that reflect the style and elegance of their historic wine estates. Boisset Ambassadors introduce premium, in-home wine tastings to their home areas. They receive training and support, including a comprehensive business kit to launch their new wine businesses.
“The wine world is often a very opaque, intimidating world. No one should be intimidated by wine,” stated Mr. Boisset. “I’m delighted to partner with Wine Women on this event since so many of our Ambassadors are women. The organization is a natural fit.”
The event is open to members and non-members alike. Advance registration is required. Details and tickets ($20-$40) are at: https://how-to-succeed-in-wine-business.eventbrite.com.
