"A comprehensive, sensitive and personal documentation of women winemakers that will inspire, connect and facilitate women in our industry. A must read for the global Women in Wine network."
-Kate Radburnd, Fellow of New Zealand Winegrowers
Winemaker/Owner, Radburnd Cellars, Napier, New Zealand

"I've been following Lucia and John's research from the beginning and am grateful for their long, inclusive, birds-eye view of women in the winemaking profession. A week seldom goes by when I don't quote their statistics."
-Cathy Corison
Winemaker/Owner, Corison Winery, Napa, CA

"Women Winemakers: Personal Odysseys excels both in depth and breadth, a testament to the many years of research by the Gilberts. It will serve not only to inform the general population but also to inspire women who are considering a career in winemaking."
-Doug and Lee Nalle
Winemaker/Owner, Nalle Winery, Healdsburg, CA

"When Maggie Henriquez from Champagne Krug and I decided to create La Transmission, we had a joint concern about the relative invisibility of women in shaping the future of a changing Champagne region. We applaud the Gilberts in addressing this concern by using the engaging odysseys of women who are shaping the future of their own changing wine regions."
-Anne Malassagne
Fourth-generation Owner of Champagne AR Lenoble, Damery, France
