Wine: Pulling the cork

Women are increasingly stepping into a domain that was once the territory of men, and with positive results

By John Mariani  /  Bloomberg

“Today men love seeing a woman sommelier. I have them eating out of my hand. With ladies, they want to become your friend and ask for more guidance. I like to talk them through wine choices. It’s more of a conversation.”

Liz Nicholson agrees.

“It is in a woman’s nature to be very hospitable,” she says. “If anything, women sommeliers have really helped remove being so uptight about ordering wine. It comes from a place in our heart based on the way we were raised. Our supreme goal is to get people what they want and make them happy. Women bring that spirit.”
