On June 22, 2009, during Vinexpo in Bordeaux, more than 80 female winemakers will gather to defend the culture of wine and the essential values of their trade in a special event and tasting held at the Cité Mondiale des Vins. In a time where wine is targeted as evil and unhealthy in France, it is a very welcome decision to see female wine professionals ready to defend their culture and values.

The winemakers come from all regions of France: Burgundy, beaujolais, Rhone Valley, Provence, Languedoc Roussillon and Medoc. For the occasion, a new group of female winemakers joined forces in a new organization, “Femmes du Sud” (Southern Women): they are all from Languedoc Roussillon and will promote their beautiful and underestimated region under the guidance of Marketing Director, Catherine Mell.
