Today I’m joining @CalifWines_CA and @tasteusfoodbev to highlight California wineries owned and operated by women! Enjoying great company and great U.S. wines at the 39th edition of the California Wine Fair.

In 2017, for the first time more women than men were enrolled in @ucdavis’s prestigious viticulture and enology program. Today @USAmbCanada is checking out Californian wineries owned or operated by women at the @CalifWines_CA Wine Fair!
