Esteemed wine critics like Robert Parker and Antonio Galloni employ gender-positive terms in their tasting notes without compunction. Masculine wines are commonly associated with structure and power, while feminine wines can be perceived as delicate and thin. Speaking about a trip to the Bandol region in the Financial Times, wine writer Jancis Robinson says, “When I tasted at the domaine last July in the company of two British wine merchants who also happened to be visiting that day, there was spirited but fruitless discussion as to whether (the wine) is 'feminine' or 'masculine'.

  • 677113Baja Wendy I am an expat Designer and Journalist living in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, and have recently written a couple of stories and conducted radio interviews with some of the Baja winemakers. There have been two Wine and Food Festivals in the past couple of weeks...one in the Cabo area and the other in Todos Santos...spotlighting the wines of Baja, with wonderful food pairing dinners the night before. Besides all the artists who live here, we are also known for our chefs here in Todos Santos. I think your readers would find the history of Baja's winemaking area and what the vineyards are producing, very interesting. Wendy Rains, wendy@buildinginbaja.com
