We are a group of women in the wine industry. Our group began in January 2008. Our founder, Sharon Harris of Amici Cellars, invited the women winemakers of Bordeaux to visit the Napa Valley. Sharon then gathered the women winemakers of Napa Valley to help host her Bordeaux friends. Sharon created four days of tastings, tours, classes, and meals, at the end of which we had all become fast friends. This led to the formation of the Women Wine Warriors, a tasting group comprised of Napa Valley women vintners and winemakers.
In January of 2009 our new friends from Bordeaux invited the Women Wine Warriors to visit Bordeaux. (You can read about that trip in the Travels Section.) The International Federation of Women in Wine was the natural evolution of the Bordeaux women winemakers and Napa Valley women winemakers wanting to expand their circle. The group includes winemakers, vintners, and women whose passion for wines is so great they've managed to be invited into the group.
We are a group of peers sharing our love of the land, our love of the differences in terrior, our love of food, and our love of wine!
