Women in Wine Awards finalist encourages sisterhood
Despite many Australian women enjoying in the occasional glass of wine, fewer dabble in a career within the industry, and viticulturist Sarah Collingwood wants to change that. Her parents have had a vineyard for the past 18 years, but she did not start working full-time in the wine industry until seven years ago. “Now John [my husband] and I haven’t left, and we hope we’re doing this for the rest of our lives,” she said. Ms Collingwood said women only made up roughly 10 per cent of viticulturists and wine makers in Australia.
