Women of Wine

According to a recent COPIA symposium, women hold most of the power in today's wine world, as they buy over 80% of the vino sold nationally: "'We are the power base when it comes to wine purchasing,” said keynote speaker Elizabeth Thach, Ph.D., a professor of wine business and management at Sonoma State University.
