Another election has come and gone, and as it has been for the past 228 years, the president-elect of the United States is once again a man. While we’ve made such promising, tantalizing cracks in the surface of the ultimate glass ceiling — there was, after all, a female candidate on the ballot, which can’t be overlooked! — it remains intact.Your decision aside, after surviving a harrowing, insult-slinging election like this, you most certainly deserve a drink, Fellow American! It seems only appropriate to find consolation in a bottle from a faction of winemakers who also remain undervalued as a whole, despite having made strides in the right direction. We’re referring, of course, to female winemakers.Each of these women — and too many more to list here — has herself overcome obstacles to achieve success and recognition in the largely male-dominated wine industry. They are all fueled by passion, determination and strength. Let them and their wines serve as more than a consolation prize. They are inspiration for the years to come, reminders to work thoughtfully for change, to lift one another up and to continue pounding on that glass ceiling until those fissures really, truly, finally become a breakthrough. Drink deeply — do you taste the possibilities that await?
