The Vincast Episode 103 – Jane Thomson from The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society

When you consider at least 50% of wine consumers are women – undoubtedly the largest segment – it seems strange that someone hadn’t created a community designed specifically for them! That was until Jane Thomson founded The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society in 2012, all about the fun and feminity of wine, running wonderful events to enjoy and learn about wine. More recently Jane has become a campaigner for more women in the wine industry, creating the Women in Wine Awards to recognise the significant contribution many female wine producers and marketers have made to the Australian wine industry. On this episode of The Vincast I chat with Jane about her journey and her passion for gender equality in the wine industry.

The Vincast Episode 017 – Dan Sims

Dan Sims is a great friend to many in the wine industry not only for his skills as a wine educator, communicator and hospitality professional, but also for his enthusiasm and humour. On this episode he joins me to talk about his beginnings in hospitality into working as a sommelier, then as a consultant, winemaker and finally for his unique and fun wine events. Being so well-connected there are a great deal of names dropped, see if you can count how many.
