March is Women’s History Month, and we are all about celebrating and elevating all womxn! With the new SWARM RBG Collection wines we released last week, we will be celebrating all things RBG, with a focus on “Justice” this month, with a series of roundtable discussions, blogs, wine tasting, coloring and crafts, and cooking classes that honor her legacy and feature discussions on what RBG meant to so many, and the influence she has had on womxn in wine and around this country.
When I look back at many of the strong women who have inspired me both personally and professionally, I think Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is among the most influential. In a world where womxn were expected to comply, she famously said “I dissent.”
When Teneral Cellars was launched, it became just as much about the message we stand behind as the exceptional wine we produce. I remember one of the many conversations we had as we worked to bring this idea to life.
Recentlyfeatured in the SacramentoBusinessJournal, Jill Osur, aco-founder and director of the winery group GoldLine Brands and host ofChill With Jill series, is challenging the odds by starting a digitally based, female-featured wine brand.
Two things happened to change my idea about the rest of my life: First, I worked at a restaurant run by wine lovers who made sure we tasted wines every week. On Saturday mornings we sat through wine classes that detailed winemaking practices and growing regions around the world. I was smitten.
The birth of Teneral Cellars came as our country struggled with the COVID-19 pandemic, and so many challenging social and environmental issues. I looked inward as a leader in the wine industry, how I could use wine, passion and leadership to build an all-digital community that speaks to like-minded women by connecting them through wine and delivering impact to causes and issues relevant to our time.
