Our Women in Wealth Management Initiative (WWMI) recently hosted an after-hours event for the many outstanding women at Adviser Investments.
On March 21, 2019, our WWMI colleagues gathered at Vinodivino in Needham for a “Women & Wine” outing to enjoy time together outside of work and learn more about the wide-ranging varietals produced exclusively by women.
Our group sampled a diverse selection from vineyards in Africa, Italy, the U.S. and Argentina. Sommelier Manika Khanna shared anecdotes about the history of each region’s vineyards as well as her personal experience working in an industry in which women are under-represented—only around 10% of vineyards worldwide are female-owned.
This wine tasting was a great opportunity to socialize and learn more about trailblazing female vintners who are reshaping their industry.
