"Women in Wine is a celebration of not only these outstanding female winemakers, who are now shaping the future of wine in a once predominately male industry, but toasts all women as survivors -- wives, mothers, and daughters -- who are affected by two of the most important issues today -- domestic violence and breast cancer," said Anjoleena Griffin-Holst, wine director for Borgata. "On behalf of Borgata, I am so pleased that Women in Wine has continued to garner further recognition each year within the industry and local communities as a one-of-a-kind culinary experience in Atlantic City, offering exceptional wines and unparalleled cuisine, but most importantly, raising over $200,000.00 to-date for these worthy causes."
Female winemakers and vintners shape many of today's major cellars.
