The wine bar putting women front and centre
Lady of the Grapes, a wine bar, restaurant and shop which opened two years ago, will showcases wines made predominately by female winemakers. Focusing on organic, biodynamic and natural wines, more than half the list features wines made by female winemakers.
Owner Carole Bryon, who hails from Paris, believes women are still hugely under represented in the wine industry. She opened the bar after a successful crowdfunding campaign, and Lady of the Grapes has since gone on to become a hub for women in the wine scene both in London and beyond. The bar regularly hosts seminars with women winemakers around the world who share their own stories and how they started their own business, and this weekend, it will even rally the troops to provide relief for those wine professionals who had already travelled to London for the now-cancelled RAW Wine fair.
On Sunday, Lady of the grapes will invite guests to “celebrate Women’s day with wine from our favourite female winemakers by the glass. All the wines will be served with a complementary snack from our kitchen made to be paired with each of the wines.”
