Last February, Amy Bess and a few of her member wineries joined #winestudio to discuss her new project. We listened, we tasted and we loved her spirit and drive.
Over a year in and Amy Bess has created a community of advocacy and solutions for women in the wine industry.
She is a mighty force! Consider supporting today.
February 2018 #winestudio Program:
Beginnings: Woman-Owned Wineries of Sonoma County
I met Amy Bess Cook on a writer retreat last September and I knew this was someone I wanted in my life.
After Amy Bess released her new project, Woman-owned Wineries (WoW) of Sonoma I contacted her immediately to offer #winestudio as a platform to get the message out.
From Amy Bess:
"I was compelled to create this site because, during my eight years of helping to operate a boutique winery, I witnessed hardworking women throughout the industry being marginalized every place from sales meetings to the cellar floor. I wanted to do something positive to celebrate their work. This project is my love letter to them."
