First female-only wine list launched
A wine list composed entirely of wines made by women has been launched at a London restaurant.
Dim sum restaurant Courtesan in Brixton is championing the female winemaker list, compiled with the help of UK wine suppliers Enotria and Matthew Clark.
The project was devised to highlight the increasingly important role women are playing in the wine world at every level, from winemaker to estate owner.
In addition to wines made by women, a few of the wines on the list hail from estates owned or directed by women, such as Duval-Leroy in Champagne.
Among the wines on the list are Yealands Viognier 2012 made by Tamra Washington, Robert Mondavi Woodbridge Cabernet Sauvignon made by Genevieve Janssens and Concha y Toro Late Harvest Sauvignon Blanc made by Cecilia Torres.
The wines were specifically selected to match with the restaurant’s dim sum offering.
