stirring up the conversation on women in wine


2018 Bâtonnage Forum: We Did a Thing, Y'all!


Did you want to revisit the awesome conversations we had on July 28th? Or, if you couldn't make it, were you curious about what was discussed? We're delighted to share the recorded audio from the first-ever Bâtonnage Forum (although sadly it cannot convey the number of fabulous sun hats on display that day). These conversations are unedited and raw — and we mean that about both the content and the flow, for those of you who couldn't join us — but we hope you enjoy. Tune in below for the full day's conversations and help us spread the word by sharing!

If you like what you hear (or just the fact that we're even having some of these tough conversations), we invite you to help us keep Bâtonnage alive by pledging your support on our donation page. And if you couldn't join us on July 28, you can still purchase Bâtonnage swag — we want the Bâtonnage logo to be recognized and for it to communicate to people both in and out of our industry that you're in support of women positively progressing in wine. 

Show your colors or pledge your support!
