Talk Story: A Different Perspective on Wine

January 8 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Women have long maintained a powerful presence in the world of wine—and their influence is only growing. In this illuminating panel discussion, Wine Speak co-founder Amanda Wittstrom Higgins will conduct a roundtable with leaders from the fields of winemaking, marketing, sales, and publishing. “What was your path to success? How do you stay on top in an ever-changing, competitive environment? What advice would you give to your younger self?” Listen in as these luminaries share their insights with an eye toward mentoring up-and-coming women in the wine industry.

Featured panelists include Meridith May, executive editor and publisher of SOMM Journal, The Tasting Panel and Clever Root; Jordan Fiorentini, VP of Winemaking and Vineyards at Epoch Estate Wines; Helen Keplinger, owner and winemaker at Keplinger Wines & Food and Wine Magazine’s “Winemaker of the Year”; and Shelley Lindgren, James Beard award winner, co-owner and wine director at A16 and SPQR.
