KEYNOTE SPEAKER 
Arlene Dickinson, The Dinner Party, March 7th, 2018 International Women’s Day

Join us on this week’s Audio Podcast, International Women’s Day 2018.

We have a fantastic show for you today all in celebration of International Women’s Day 2018 coming up on March 8th. International Women’s Day was officially launched in 1911. Therefore, as a result, 100 years later IWD is celebrated around the world hence 1000’s of events take place honouring women everywhere for their various achievements.

We are proud to celebrate the accomplishments of three extraordinary women, two of which are in one of the most exciting and delicious businesses in the world. Yes, it’s true, we may be a little bias due to this world of wine being ours. And one other in the traditionally male dominated world of politics. You will want to meet THIS Mayor, she is a definite force!

International Women's Day

Our 1st guest… Margo Van Staaveren Winemaker and General Manager of Chateau St. Jean.

Chateau St. Jean is located in Sonoma Valley. This year will be Margo’s 38th harvest at Chateau St Jean. Margo was named Winemaker of the year by Wine Enthusiast Magazine in 2008 and we’re looking forward to learning more about Chateau St. Jean, Margo’s wines and Margo’s story on getting in the biz as a woman. How was  her journey to achieving such success, including challenges perhaps and some great advice for upcoming female winemakers.

Please listen to Margo Van Staaveren at 4:42 minutes into the show.

Breaking through the proverbial glass ceiling!

There has definitely seen a shift in the wine business over the last 10-15 years with a greater presence of women. We attend may events from the weekly wine tastings, the winemakers we meets and to the Export Directors and the various media we would say at least half are women, if not more. And just a side note women been proven to be superior tasters? Or is the jury still out on that?
