Top 50 most powerful women in wine: 40-31

12th December, 2012 by Lucy Shaw

36. HEIDI PETERSON BARRETT

AGE: 54
Peterson Barrett is the woman behind some of California’s most lusted after cult wines. Her entry into the California vintners hall of fame was assured when she produced the inaugural vintage of Screaming Eagle in 1992, which, on receiving a 99-point score from Robert Parker, thrust both her and the wine into the spotlight. In addition to Screaming Eagle, Barrett, a UC Davis graduate, has made wine for other big gun California estates, including Dalla Valle and Grace Family Vineyards. Her skills are currently in play at both Paradigm and Kenzo Estate, where she is winemaker, along with Diamond Creek Vineyards and Niebaum- Coppola, where she is a consultant. Barrett achieves all this while running her own boutique label, La Sirena.

  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 .
