If wine is a hug in a glass; what does that make these winemaker moms? Women winemakers are a force in the South African wine industry. Female winemakers in SA are making waves both locally and internationally with their ground-breaking wines. We have a plethora of skilled women winemakers who are producing wines of acclaim and turning the spotlight ever more on SA. And all the while closing the gender gap in the male-dominated wine industry.
All of the above is no small feat, but then many of these winemakers add ‘mother’ to their résumé too. Here are a few of our favourites.
