Then I saw this online article titled "The Women Who Rule Napa." For someone who knows Napa wine they've probably heard of Heidi Barrett and Helen Turley. The article also talks about a couple other women heading up wineries.
In Sonoma County we have Zelma Long as a pioneer. A few current well-known "women in wine" are Merry Edwards, Kathy Inman, Susie Selby, and Carol Shelton. There are others in Napa and Sonoma, but out of the 450 wineries in Napa, another 450 in Sonoma and over 4,000 in California not very many have women in charge.
