The lack of access to capital for women—especially women of color—is nothing new: Women couldn’t even get loans to start businesses without a male cosigner until 1988. So the history of American women as solo entrepreneurs is very short. A support system, formal or informal, has not historically been in place to support women who aspire to succeed as businesspeople.
We aim to address that by supporting and promoting female wine entrepreneurs. You can participate: Browse the directory to find hardworking women in wine. Then use your dollars to support their work! Thank you for being a part of our growing community of conscious wine lovers.
