A celebration of wine and women

If you are passionate and believe in what you are doing, work is not a job but a way of life. For today''s enterprising women in the wine industry, it is their passion for their careers in wine that both defines them and unites them. More than a book about wine, Women of the Vine connects with today''s women in the wine industry, whose passions dictate how they lead their lives, how they fight adversity and conquer gender stereotypes in an often male-dominated workplace—and how their calling has taken them on the most rewarding journeys of their lives.

"Women of the Vine is a terrific book; a great read for everyonein the wine community."
—Margrit Biever Mondavi

"Deborah Brenner takes you on a unique and enjoyable journey into wine country. It''s a people story, with wine as the glittering backdrop."

"This clutch of inspiring profiles will provide ample encouragement for women—whether they aspire to be sommelier, journalist, or winemaker—to follow their dream."
—Alice Feiring, wine writerThe New York Times and Time magazine

Complete with helpful sidebars filled with tips and secrets—including storing wine after opening, unusual food and wine pairings, and tasting wine like a pro—Women of the Vine is a fun, accessible way to share your love for wine with the enterprising women who help bring it to your table.
