WOW: Top Ten Women of Wine in India 2013

WOW: Top Ten Women of Wine in India 2013

Mar 24: The Indian wine industry is at a nascent stage but many women have taken the plunge in the field of winemaking, marketing, education and journalism, with varying degree of success. It may be too early but in an effort to be the first in many areas in wine, delWine brings you the first-ever list of Top Ten Women of Wine in India 2013: WOW, with the objective of recognizing the persistent ones in the face of adversity and to encourage more to choose the healthy option.. We have refrained from ranking them as that would require extensive polls and surveys and have chosen to keep it generally in alphabetical order

The Top Ten has been arrived after compiling a list of around 50 women living in India and active in the wine industry in some capacity. One of the criteria has been that those selected should have been contributing towards the industry for the last five years or more. If their sphere of work is not exclusive in wine, they should have been spending a majority of their time and efforts in the wine activities.

An effort has been made to keep a balance (the same key ingredient as in wine quality) in selecting women from different segments of wine- like winemaking, production, sales and markeing including export and import, restaurants and wine journalism keeping in view the international exposure, wine educational background, corporate or business experience.

The purpose of this Series of articles, the first ever of this kind in India, has been to highlight that the wine industry is not a male bastion. We need to encourage women to enter the industry and recognize them for their contribution in the increase of wine consumption. Wine may not still be a full time job for most women at this point of time. We have considered those with passion for wine and devoting a majority of their time to wine related activities. In most cases, the figures and facts have been taken to be the truth since they are given by the women-we assume that they are women of integrity.

Also, it being the maiden attempt, we have not kept the list in order of merit, but rather in alphabetic order. There is bound to be criticism but we have tried to be as objective as possible. The readers are welcome to send their suggestions and any glaring omissions – in fact we encourage and appreciate such inputs.
