🍷 House of Red & White is my wine agency. We import premium wines from less known regions and promote women leadership: in 2019 trailblazers from different parts of the world attended the inaugural Women in Wine Expo.
🌎 Next conference is scheduled on 4-6 May 2022 in Georgia (the country, not the state). As the only Global Expo for women in wine, we aspire to host professionals from every continent.
👒 My wine journey started in Austin while I was a visiting professor at the University of Texas. Among other places, a shortlist of my wine travels:
* Texas Hill Country wineries
* Thrace & Aegean wineries
* Rias Baixas
* Champagne - Bordeaux- Provence
* Verona & Sicily
* Georgian wineries in the foothills of the Caucasus Mountains
👭 Attended 100+ conferences all around the globe. Highlights as keynote speaker/moderator:
* Wonder Women of Wine (Austin)
* London School of Economics
* Women without Borders (Vienna)
* Art of Living Women’s Congress (Bangalore)
* WISE Initiative (New York)
* One World Documentary Festival (Prague)
✨ Started my career as TV host and news producer for the largest Dutch 🇳🇱 broadcaster. Later I published SEN, awarded Best New Magazine in 2004.
👸🏻 Featured in leading newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times, Foreign Policy, Austin Statesman, Forbes and LA Times. In 2010, Marie Claire pointed me out as one of the ten ministers of the Ideal Women’s Cabinet.
✍️ I coauthored several nonfiction books. My novel - The Waxclub - was touted as the Mediterranean version of Sex and the City.
On CLUBHOUSE every two weeks on Thursday (6-7 pm CET) I host a room about women in wine and underrepresented wine regions.
Next room scheduled on September 1.
