Celebrate Women’s History Month withA Week of Women-Owned Wine
Take a journey through California’s wine regions, one sip – and story – at a time.
Of the 4,200+ wineries in California, approximately 14% of them have female head winemakers.
Yep, you read that right, ~14%.
Our mission at Maker is to serve up award-winning, premium wine from independent winemakers – and in particular to highlight female-led wineries.
Celebrate the ladies in your life with six nights of wine from women-owned or women-led wineries - one for every day of the week, with a rest day buffered in. Each can is made by a different female winemaker or female-led winery we love.
Meet the Winemakers
Colleen Clothier from Revolution Wines
Colleen Clothier is a spunky, twenty-something Sacramento local who, after majoring in enology at UC Davis, came back to the city with a vision of shining a light on unique grape varieties and local wine regions like nearby Clarksburg and Amador county... and she did just that. She worked her way up from server to head winemaker in just 3 years at Revolution Wines and collaborated with us for our first Chenin Blanc.
Gianna Fugazi is a wanderer at heart. Having studied archeology as well as wine-making, it’s her love of history, culture, and the world at-large that brings her to wine. To Gianna, wine is meant to be an ever-evolving experiment and a way for people to connect. She treats her winery, Wander-Must, as a kitchen of sorts: a gathering place of play and indulgence for travelers from all over.
Janell Dusi of J Dusi Wines
Janell Dusi grew up among her family’s vines – literally. Vines touched her bedroom window and family time at the Dusi’s meant working the field. The family’s Zinfandel grapes were originally planted when her great-grandparents immigrated from Italy in the 1920s and, while her family has been Zin farmers for generations, she's the first to make wine from the family's iconic fruit – and (damn!) it's good.
The women from Handley Cellars
The Handley ladies have been mothering vines, babies, and biz since 1982. The winery is nestled in the Anderson Valley on a narrow stretch of land with unique terroir, which in the '80s, was largely undiscovered in the wine world. Founding winemaker, Milla Handley, was the first female winemaker in the US to establish a label with her own name on it. She passed the torch to her daughter Lulu, who runs the winery, and Randy Schock, head winemaker.
Nicole Walsh of Ser Winery
Nicole Walsh is a Santa Cruz surfer making big waves in cool-climate wine, growing super rare grapes in rugged coastal terrain. After working in wine around the world—from Michigan to New Zealand to Santa Cruz, she started her label, Ser, which means “to express origin” in Spanish. Ser Winery specializes in unique single-vineyard, single-varietal wines like Saprkling Riesling, Cabernet Pfeffer, and Rosé of Grenache.
Tara Gomez and Mireia Taribó from Camins 2 Dream
Tara Gomez and Mireia Taribó, the wife and wife winemaking duo behind Camins 2 Dreams, graced us with our first natty wine – but it didn't happen overnight. We knew that we wanted to partner up the moment we met but, as a small start-up winery, they didn’t have the grapes to spare for a new collab. Fast forward 18 months through sourcing, harvest, and fermentation… the result: the most perfect Albariño.
