Our Purpose

Women of the Vine & Spirits (WOTVS) is an all-encompassing global membership
dedicated to boldly pushing the wine, beer and spirits industry toward a
more diverse, equitable and inclusive era that empowers all to succeed.

We are the springboard for action, the connection to the brave collective.

TOGETHER, we are changing the FACE of the alcohol beverage industry!

Our Pledge

We are the inventors, curators and storytellers,
the ones who know, skill is nothing without soul,

and hard work is nothing without heart.


We are the unapologetic leaders
creating waves,
giving a whole new meaning to the phrase,

“ladies first.”


Because it’s our turn.
To lead with the lionhearted,
to create with the unafraid,

to share our story.


This is our becoming,
the ripples of our rising,

this is our place.

Where our individuality is celebrated, and

our community is strengthened.

This is where our grace meets our grit and

our poise meets our power.


We are co-creators.
We are change-makers.

We are Women of the Vine & Spirits.


Our Community

We rise by sharing the powerful stories of others and
collaborating in a space where our voices are heard
and championed by a global network.

Beverage Industry, Worldwide




Visibility of women in traditionally male-dominated roles and industries cannot be underestimated.

in the wine, beer, and spirits industry.

These women have earned their place at the top as forward-thinkers, disruptors, innovators and icons using their voice and position to elevate others into leadership roles.
