Home > Events > Meet Brilliant Women of Wine

Join master sommelier Jennifer Huether and some of the modern wine world’s top women for a tutored tasting, panel discussion and intimate brunch. Our five special guests will share their wines, insights and accomplishments, then chat with guests over an elegant gourmet meal. Up to 15 wines will be tasted.

Ann Sperling, director of winemaking and viticulture at Southbrook Vineyards in Niagara-on-the-Lake, is a local trailblazer in the production of organic and biodynamic wine.

Valentina Abbona is a sixth-generation proprietor and vintner at Marchesi di Barolo, the historic estate that attracted kingly attention and earned Barolo its royal reputation in the 19th century.

Jill DelaRiva Russell made wine in nearly every part of her home state of California, in addition to a stint in Australia, before taking up the torch as winemaker at Cambria Estate.

Laura Catena, in addition to being a working physician and author, is the fourth-generation vintner to steer Bodega Catena Zapata: one of the leading wine estates in Argentina.

Maria Larrea, technical director and chief winemaker at Companiá Vinícola del Norte de España (CVNE) in Spain, leads an award-winning team at an estate with over a century of history.

This celebration of women and wine in a cozy, elegant setting makes a perfect early Mother’s Day gift idea.
