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 in 2021 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 paving the way for future generations in the wine industry!
