So, who does the nightly wine shopping in your family...him or her?

 

You may find it interesting that most of the wine consumed at home is primarily purchased by women.  But as a winemaker, how do you know which wine she will prefer?

 

 

 

 

One way is to enter your wine in the International Women’s Wine Competition, judged entirely by wine industry professional women.  Its mission?  To uniquely identify specific wines that women will enjoy and ultimately purchase.

Why produce a women’s wine competition?  Event founder and president, Debra Del Fiorentino says, “This competition’s niche appeal certainly gives women their own ‘voice’, when selecting a wine.  The judges recognize not only the best wines submitted, but also the wines they feel would appeal most to women wine buyers and consumers. And even though a special nod goes to the best woman winemaker, it’s important to know that this competition is open to all winemakers, male and female alike.”

3 ways medal winners will benefit:

 

  1. You'll find out what women like. Expert opinions can boost sales and judges’ decisions may directly influence female wine buyers.

  2. Winners get extra exposure. Judges include wine-based traditional media and social media experts who know how to get the word out about the wines they like.

  3. PR and bragging rights.

 

Award for Best Woman Winemaker

 

If your winery has a woman winemaker, be sure to note it at time of entry.  Aside from judging wines on their own merit made by both men and women, a special award will be given to the Best Woman Winemaker based on wines made just by women.
