National Women in Wine Day
An expression of gratitude to the women shaping the wine industry.
National Women in Wine Day is a social initiative founded last year by Renae Perry and Yolanda Papapietro, co-owners and co-founders of Papapietro Perry Winery in California. The celebration takes place annually on March 25th to highlight stories of women in the wine industry. The mission of #WomeninWineDay, is to support women in wine, while also providing a sense of empowerment and resources for those seeking to enter the business. Inspired by International Women’s History Month which takes place in March of each year, Papapietro Perry Winery along with other participating wineries, share a common goal of establishing a scholarship fund that benefits women within, or pursuing, education or career advancement in the wine industry. In the interim, please consider visiting our donations and scholarships page to support a worthy organization that empowers women in wine or to apply for eligible scholarships in Wine Education.
Cheers to the many women pioneering the wine industry!
We are excited to introduce the first National Women in Wine Day on March 25, 2021, founded by a California winery that was co-created and is co-owned, by two women. Inspired by International Women’s History Month which takes place in March of each year, National Women in Wine Day will be a celebration that will take place annually on the 25th of March

“There are many women who have pioneered in the wine industry, a business that has historically been primarily male. We cannot wait to celebrate and tell the stories about these women,” said Papapietro Perry CEO Renae Perry, “As part of Women's History Month, March 25 is a natural day to celebrate the many Women in Wine across the globe. Recognizing Women in Wine may attract future generations of women to the wine industry, whether working as winemakers, CEOs, marketing directors, viticulturists, writers, influencers and more!”
