To celebrate every day the women day, we want to tell about the “women of wine“, the serious and passionate sommelier that in Italy are working though in a almost exclusively masculine world.
Today in Italy 30% of sommelier are women, and most part of them are part of ‘Donne del vino‘ association, with more than 770 members, with different expertises: producers, restaurant owners, sommelier, journalists, wine experts and cellar owners. Wine is organization and fatigue, but to serve it you need sensibility.
