With March being Women’s History Month, it’s that time of year when the usual suspects tend to get trotted out. Now don’t get me wrong, I love Julia Child, The Widow Clicquot and all the other women who have enriched my epicurean world, but it’s the 21st century, folks. Let’s see if we can’t find some women who are making things happen today!

You might have caught my recent virtual tasting with Melissa Burr at Stoller Vineyards. Melissa epitomizes the modern woman in wine. While there have no doubt been the doubters and the naysayers, Melissa has established herself as a well respected and talented winemaker in what may very well be the most collaborative, forward-looking wine community on the planet!
