With March being Women’s Herstory Month and today being International Women’s Day, what better to celebrate than with a collection of wine made by women winemakers and/or coming from women-run wineries? Yes, this month, it’s not just one wine, but a whole tote bag full of them!
Six mixed bottles (red, white, rosé, bubbles)
made by women winemakers and women-led estates
*ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of proceeds from these totes goes to supporting women in the wine industry via producing the Bâtonnage Forum and ensuring that the event is accessible and affordable for all.
The Wine Merchant | Bay Grape
Within my first few months of moving to the Bay Area, I was lucky enough to stumble upon the recently-opened Bay Grape wine shop in Oakland, run by couple Stevie Stacionis and Josiah Baldivino. The bright and cheerful space, the incredible selection of wines, the friendly and knowledgeable staff, and the fun line-up of tasting events instantly won me over and have made Bay Grape a smashing success. Fast forward five years and Stevie and Josiah are not only about to open a comfort-food Italian restaurant called MAMA, but Stevie is also behind a second annual forum for women in the wine industry, which will take place this year on May 4th in Napa.
