Carpe Travel - Women Are Defining The Idaho Wine

Wine is often times described with feminine qualities – sexy finish, voluptuous layers, delicate aromas – yet the job  of a winemaker has traditionally been male. Take California, the leading wine producing sate in the United States, only 10 percent of lead winemakers at the state’s 3,400+ wineries are female. It’s fair to say the job of a winemaker is dominated by male winemakers. However, times are changing. The number of women graduating with enology degrees is slowly increasing, as are the number of female winemakers all over the county…especially in the Idaho wine region.
