Top 50 most powerful women in wine: 40-31

12th December, 2012 by Lucy Shaw

38. EILEEN CRANE

AGE: 54
The CEO and chief winemaker of what is considered by many as the jewel in Napa’s sparkling crown, Domaine Carneros, Crane helped set up the estate 25 years ago with the Taittinger family, who own the property. She has a quarter- century of vintages under her belt at the estate, which is now certified organic. Crane’s most notable achievement at Domaine Carneros, which produces a number of still wines in addition to its sparkling range, is the development of prestige cuvée Le Rêve. During her tenure, Crane has developed a second winemaking facility to accommodate the production of her still Pinot Noir range, along with an 18th-century style château where guests can enjoy sharing plates and a bottle of fizz on the terrace.

  1. Steve Webb says:

    I do hope Sandrine Garbay is top – she does after all make the best wine in the world bar none!

    • Martin Campion says:

      Steve, Sandrine comes a close second, but top spot surely goes to Katharina Pum. Berenice Lurton is # three, obviously.

  2. I would Tanya Torr right up very close to the top .
