Why I hate female sommeliers and so should you

You would be forgiven for thinking that we are living in a marvelous time for women in the wine industry. With headlines like “The Rise of the Female Sommeliers” and “Sex and the Sommelier: Make Way for Women,” women are showing up everywhere. From “13 Badass Female Winemakers” to “New York City’s Pioneering Female Sommeliers,” women seem to be making big strides in wine making and tasting. As a female wine writer, I should be delighted by this celebration of “female” sommeliers and winemakers. Surely this explosion of coverage of women in wine is cause for excitement. But I’m not excited. In fact, I hate it.
