Batonnage forum

Bâtonnage is a forum opening up a conversation about women in wine. Our inaugural event took place in 2018 – and it was a soaring success. Though the first year was an entirely grassroots effort, it sold out weeks before the event to the 300-person capacity. This year, the May 4 Bâtonnage Forum anticipates over 500 in attendance. The event's mission is to connect with and educate wine professionals, as well as wine industry supporters, on the unique challenges and opportunities that women in the field – winemakers, vineyard workers, writers and marketers, salespeople, sommeliers, collectors, and drinkers – have faced both historically and present-day. We simultaneously seek to propose pragmatic solutions for charting a positive, inclusive course forward.
