* The Champagne Bureau is happy to support this tasting with Sommeliers Australia to celebrate International Women’s Day and in recognition of the work that Sommeliers Australia’s is doing in the Diversity and Inclusion space, in creating a safe and inclusive workspace for all sommeliers and wine professionals regardless of gender or identity.



There has been a long history of the influence of strong female role models in the Champagne region that has been documented since medieval times. Contemporary evidence shows that this vital role of women continues in the industry today, where there is more inclusion and diversity in traditional roles; since 2017 there have been more female students studying wine making at Reims University than ever before.
