Review

“A thorough treatise. . . . The portraits reveal a great deal about the challenges women face in the industry.”
(Gastronomica: Journal Of Food & Culture 2007-11-01)

From the Inside Flap

"Ann Matasar has documented the struggles and strategies of contemporary women to succeed and lead in wine. Her stories are diverse, instructive, powerful, and poignant."—Zelma Long, Zelphi Wines

"An engaging story that pays homage to the women at the crossroads of wine's cultural history. With penetrating insight and deep affection, Ann Matasar tells the story of these pioneering women through fascinating oral histories."—Anne Rosenzweig, founding board member of the International Association of Women Chefs and Restaurateurs

"Ann Matasar has performed the tricky task of addressing women's roles in the wine world without resorting to tiresome gender stereotypes. Her book proves that, despite the challenges, women make an ever-increasing contribution to wine at every level of production, commerce, and appreciation."—Mary Ewing-Mulligan, MW, co-author of Wine Style and Wine For Dummies, and President, International Wine Center

Informative and Inspiring Nov. 14 2006
By Lyn Wolfson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a business woman and wine enthusiast, I found "Women of Wine" a facinating, insightful, thought-provoking examination of women in the wine industry. Ann Matasar respectfully presents their stories, identifies the obstacles they have had to overcome, and highlights their achievements and contributions. She takes a global perspective which makes the book all the more interesting and comprehensive. With the holidays upon us, "Women of Wine" makes a great gift for men and women who appreciate wine.

Great Personal Stories From Wine Industry Leaders Nov. 22 2006
By B. Drye - Published on Amazon.com

I'm no wine connoisseur, but after reading Women of Wine, I have a much better understanding of the industry and the people who shape it. This book provides excellent dinner conversation.

Wonderful book! Nov. 9 2006
By Chantal Angot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was given "Women in Wine" as a gift from a friend who shares my love for wine literature. What a wonderful read! So many wine books are either fluff or dully academic. This is neither. "Women in Wine" is an informative book that you can curl up with in front of the fire. The stories of these remarkable women make `Women in Wine" a compelling read for just about anyone (not just the wine guy or gal). This is the only book I have ever read (or even heard about) with such a global perspective on women in the wine world. How refreshing to see past California for a change! I am going to order a few more copies of "Women in Wine" just to have around the house for those last minute holiday gifts that always seem to pop up. What a sensational find!

This Book is a Great Read Nov. 12 2006
By Karen S. Leff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Women of Wine is well-written, informative, and witty. Ann Matsar has undertaken to tell the story of how women impact the male-dominated wine industry. In her introduction, Matsar says that people are astonished to discover a unique woman who has conquered age-old prejudices in order to become an exemplary winemaker, winery owner, or a sommelier. But this book is not about that one woman, rather, it pays homage to a growing number of women who wield power and influence within the wine industry. If you love wine - or even if you don't - you will love this book. I highly recommend it.

A fascinating read Dec 20 2006
By Garry Gassel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book comes amidst wine's impressive surge in popularity in recent years. It's a candid look at the inner-workings of the wine industry and the previously unrecognized emergence of women as major role-players. Matasar has fittingly chosen to tell this story through very personal recollections of a veritable who's who of the pre-eminent women in wine in the world today.

A fascinating read.
