This makes me both angry and sad. And it was fitting to find this post this morning. Last night my wine group watched "Wine From Here" and you were the only woman in the film. There must be female winemakers in CA. I guess we have a long way to go if we are only to be viewed as hypersexual beings that like wine.

It's "The Bell Jar" forced upon us.

Oh come on! The hospitality/booze industry is one place where women have a distinct advantage. I have over 20 years in the industry and have probably forgotten more about food/drink than most people will ever know for themselves. I can't count the times where I've been shot down looking for work because XYZ company 'doesn't hire males' or has their quota - which is usually 5-10 females to every one male. Granted that advantage is one that rapidly diminishes with age - ageism the other major problem in these industries - but they still have a distinct advantage nonetheless. Oh yes, and most of the marketing departments are headed up by women so you can blame men for objectifying women in these cases.

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
