Women for WineSense celebrates its roots

From a Napa-based legislative movement founded 22 years ago, to a national wine industry networking organization, Women for WineSense has come a long way.
“Women for WineSense believes that wine enhances and enriches everyday life,” national president Rebecca Moore said, quoting from the organization’s mission statement.
WWS provides “women and men with unbiased information about the cultural heritage, social and health effects of moderate wine consumption as part of a healthy lifestyle,” according to the mission statement. It offers educational programs and networking opportunities to wine industry professionals and enthusiasts throughout America.
“We are an organization open to men and women, but we are primarily about the advancement of women within the industry,” Moore said.
The 2012 Grand Event, WWS’s semi-annual national conference, was held May 4-6 in Napa Valley. The event included an evening reception at Oakville’s Robert Mondavi Winery, private winery tours and tastings, and a series of educational seminars at the Culinary Institute of America, Greystone campus, along with an awards presentation and silent auction.
The seminars ranged from wine and food pairing tips with Master Sommelier Andrea Immer Robinson, to a discussion and tasting of different California chardonnay styles, to an introduction to Sonoma County artisanal cheeses, among many other topics.
“I want people to know that we are an incredibly dynamic, open organization with something for everyone,” Moore said. “You can be a wine enthusiast just looking to be more knowledgeable, or someone looking to get into the industry, or someone in the industry who wants to switch careers; there’s an endless array of educational opportunities that you can avail yourself of through the organization.”
WWS was founded in 1990 in opposition to the Mothers Against Drunk Driving organization’s campaign to have wine classified alongside hard liquor. The founders were Julie Johnson of Tres Sabores Winery, Michaela Rodeno of Villa Ragazzi/Rodeno Vineyards, Margrit Mondavi of Robert Mondavi Winery and Margaret Duckhorn of Duckhorn Vineyards.
“They were teaching in the schools that alcohol in general was bad and the kids were coming home to households that had wine on the table and saying, ‘Mommy, why are you poisoning Daddy?’,” Moore said.
The cultural element of wine was missing from the equation, Moore said, which particularly irked Johnson and her peers, who thought that awareness needed to be raised.
“Wine is a sustaining agriculture and an economic driver for so many parts of the United States that it’s not fair to just look at them in the microcosm of ‘You produce alcohol, therefore you’re bad,’” she said.
“Unfortunately, that’s what was coming out of MADD at the time, and there needed to be some common sense thrown into the mix. That’s how we originated,” Moore said.
The battle to keep wine producers separated from hard liquor producers took nearly three years, but in the end WWS prevailed.
Afterward, the women had to decide what to do with the organization.
“It brought the wine industry here closer together and gave them a unified movement,” Moore said. “The women didn’t want to disband and it gradually morphed into an organization about education … and the promotion of women within the wine industry.
“Thirty to 40 years ago, women winemakers were almost unheard of — the glass ceiling was firmly in place and women like our founders were really blazing trails,” she added.
One of her goals for the remainder of her presidency, Moore said, is to continue expanding WWS’s membership, particularly with men.
“I think that we could do a better job of getting the not-so-fair sex involved, persuading them to be more supportive, because, for better or worse, there is still more visibility granted to organizations that are male-dominated,” Moore said.
The organization has more than 800 members in 12 chapters across the country. Moore’s goal is to have 1,000 members by year’s end.
