WINE WOMEN celebrates its second anniversary with Jean-Charles Boisset at an alfresco reception and dinner at DeLoach Vineyards in Santa Rosa in conjunction with the judges’ dinner for the International Women’s Wine Competition on June 19th at 6 pm. For the first time, this annual event is open both to members and prospective members. Attendees will enjoy a sparkling wine reception with Mr. Boisset and the competition judges, followed by dinner in the grove, all provided by major events sponsor Boisset Collection. Tickets are available at:

WINE WOMEN president Christine L. Mueller summed up the past two years’ accomplishments, “We’ve been thrilled by the support of the wine industry and growth of our membership. It’s been very gratifying to hear stories from our members about the high value they’ve received in participating in our programs. Our first two years have been filled with growth and new faces and contributors. As we enter our third year, we’re excited to offer more opportunities for our members to enhance and build their professional skills. As we continue our growth our next steps with the addition of new programs and educational resources.”

The gourmet reception and dinner, prepared by sponsor Boisset Collection’s Atelier Fine Foods & Catering, will mark WINE WOMEN’s second anniversary as a nonprofit professional trade organization focused on advancing women’s careers in the wine industry by fostering and nurturing talent, providing networking and training opportunities, as well as advocating for better opportunities for women in this industry.

The Boisset Collection is WINE WOMEN’s major events sponsor and is a family-owned collection of historic and unique wineries in France and California bound together by a common cause: authentic, terroir-driven wines in harmony with their history, their future and the land and people essential to their existence. With more than twenty historical and prestigious wineries in the world’s preeminent terroirs, including the Côte d’Or, Beaujolais, Rhône Valley, California’s Russian River Valley and the Napa Valley, each house retains its unique history, identity, and style, and all are united in the pursuit of fine wines expressive of their terroir.

Membership Director, Maureen Bragg, outlined WINE WOMEN’s membership offering: “Because our organization is focused on professionals working in and around the wine industry, we’ve developed our benefits solely around their needs to accelerate and advance their careers.” She continued, “That begins with the opportunity to participate in WINE WOMEN’s peer group forums as well as volunteer on projects and attend events at discounted rates. We encourage both women and men, of legal drinking age, to join the organization if this is part of their objectives for their careers. In addition, we offer a host of benefits to raise our individual members’ profiles within the industry to build strong, lasting relationships that lead to career advancement.”

Ms. Bragg further explained other membership levels to dovetail with the offerings of Individual Membership: “These days we have large companies with hundreds of employees working at many wineries under their ownership. Our Corporate Membership is geared to take advantage of these corporate structures with volume buying power. In essence, our Corporate Membership offers all the benefits of Individual Membership, plus discounts on the individual membership for multiple employees. From as few as two to twenty or more employees, we offer tiered discount levels to match the corporation’s number of employees who become members in our organization. Corporate Membership also provides the benefits of brand building and exposure by offering opportunities to sponsor programs and events as well as speak directly to our individual members.” Additional membership types are also available.
