The National Womens Wine Competition (http://nwwc.info) began as a “bolt out of the blue” in early 2005. Lea Pierce, a direct marketing consultant in the wine industry, was discussing wine competitions in general with a colleague when inspiration struck: “We should hold a national women’s wine competition!” she said. Pierce understood that women buy 60-70% of all the wine in the U.S., creating an untapped opportunity to create a competition judged entirely by women. The results would create the first “woman-to-woman roadmap of the wine industry”, helping professional wine buyers and consumers identify wines that women enjoy. After two years of work and development, the first competition was staged in 2007 in Santa Rosa, California.
