Women for Wine Sense Roundtables

    The Napa/Sonoma chapter’s eight current professional roundtables serve to provide a welcoming and confidential meeting environment for their members. Meetings offer professional development, networking and educational opportunities, as well as a forum for sharing ideas and discussing ‘hot issues’ facing members in their day-to-day work. The current slate of roundtables includes finance and accounting, human resources, winemaking and viticulture, and marketing and direct-to-consumer sales. Each roundtable sets its own meeting schedule and agenda for the year, as well as membership requirements. For open roundtables, guests may attend two meetings before joining Women for Winesense. Click on the Membership tab for member benefits and rates, and to sign up.

    As about 70% of the Napa/Sonoma chapter’s members are wine industry professionals, the roundtables are key to our success. We love input, whether it’s a new roundtable proposal, guest speaker referrals, or offer of a meeting location.
