Connections: Summer of Food - Women in the wine industry

Jul 6, 2017

We kick off our annual Summer of Food series with a conversation about women in the wine industry. We’re joined by organizers of an upcoming symposium hosted by the Finger Lakes chapter of Women for WineSense. The organization’s Grand Event later this month will cover a number of subjects, including the science of food and wine, how wine factors into a healthy lifestyle, how dessert wines fit into the craft cocktail scene, and more.

Our guests discuss current issues in the wine industry, and the origins of the Women for WineSense group: why it was formed, how it has evolved, and its goals for the future. Our guests:

  • Donna Schlosser Long, president of the Women for WineSense Finger Lakes Chapter
  • Katie Roller, co-chair for the Women for WineSense Grand Event
  • Michaela Rodeno, co-founder of Women for WineSense
  • Julie Johnson, co-founder of Women for WineSense
