REBEL GRAPE SOCIETY

APRIL 2021

Who runs the world? It’s the women, clearly. Let’s start with the obvious recognition that the wine industry, like so many others, still has a long way to go to create an equal landscape of opportunity for the numerous deserving producers, but here’s to the progress that’s been made thus far.  The most important step can be seen in the past few years where the honest recognition of women winemakers has been based on their hard work, their personal talent and their delicious results. They are no longer looked at as an industry anomaly. 

We present to you this month three such winemakers, business owners, risk takers and, coincidentally, lovers of the greater Santa Cruz area. All three have found paths for their small production labels through working with flavors that are under-represented in the California landscape. They are quickly creating more believers and followers of these Rebel grape varieties every time one of their wine bottles is opened up and enjoyed.
