Femmes du Vin: Empowering and Inspiring Women of Wine

Femmes du Vin was created by Sommelier Emily Pearce-Bibona in 2016 as a social event to bring a community of women in the wine world together.

Our mission is to build out from this strong beginning to bring Emily’s message to a broader community by:

  1. Positively impacting the community through networking events
  2. Developing mentorship programs
  3. Providing opportunities for members to grow and succeed in the field
  4. Providing educational opportunities developed through a lens of personal growth
  5. Providing support systems to enable the community to succeed

To support this effort, we are expanding Emily’s Femmes du Vin trade event to include a full day of networking, mentoring and educational offerings. At our Toronto event, guests will be exposed to a variety of seminars led by leading women in the wine industry including some of the world’s top sommeliers, winery executives and others seeking to advance women in the profession.
