Women Winemakers Book Cover with author photos

Join Luica and John Gilbert for a meet-and-greet presenting the new book, Women Winemakers: Personal Odysseys. John and Lucia will be signing copies of their book and they will also be providing Wine and Chocolates!

Women Winemakers captures the passion, courage, and talent of the women who are successfully making their way in what has long been a male-dominated field. In this groundbreaking volume, Lucia and John Gilbert, professors and lovers of wine, set out to make women winemakers and their contributions to the wine industry more visible.

The authors engaged in one-on-one conversations with dozens of trailblazing women winemakers from throughout California and important wine regions of France, Italy, New Zealand, Portugal, and Spain. Their insightful book presents the personal odysseys of these trailblazers through the lens of four career pathways and the cultural histories of each wine region. Despite occurring in different cultures and times, the journeys of these women demonstrate a commonality of purpose and direction. Their stories will inspire current and future winemakers and educate wine enthusiasts about the careers of women who make wine.
