stirring up the conversation on women in wine



HELLS YES. Bâtonnage is gearing up for year two!

Coming off of an amazing first event this past summer, preparations are now underway for a second forum scheduled for Saturday, May 4, 2019! Save the date!

Meanwhile, we’re looking for two dedicated individuals to join our small and feisty, mad-hustling, all-volunteer team to help make our encore presentation an even greater success.

While volunteering for Bâtonnage is unpaid, you’ll be at the forefront of an exciting, dynamic and positivity-charged movement within the wine industry. Successful candidates will be featured on our website and in promotional materials where appropriate. We can also work with you to provide college internship credit if applicable.
