Made with Maude | Fair wine from female winemakers
Did you know that only 15% of winemakers are women? The traditional wine industry is still in its infancy when it comes to inclusivity. Made with Maude aims to change that. This Dutch start-up unites the very best female winemakers and offers them a platform. Why wait with good intentions until January when you can already make a difference in December? The holidays are the time to toast with honest wine.
Great idea for female-led restaurants to put these wines on their menu and in the spotlight!
