Rianie Strydom, celebrated winemaker for two of South Africa’s top brands, Haskell and Dombeya in Stellenbosch has been invited to attend the Wine Entre Femme gathering, taking place in Napa Valley California, from January the 29th, until February the 2nd, 2010.

Wine Entre Femme is an informal and non-competitive gathering of women in wine who have a strong desire to make connections, share ideas, information and support other women in wine.

Rianie is the first South African woman in wine to enjoy this honour, after being nominated by United Kingdom wine guru, Jancis Robinson MW. Women winemakers and vintners from around the world will gather with leading winemakers and vintners from the Napa Valley for three days of workshops, tastings, seminars and networking, culminating in a trade and press tasting representative of more than 50 labels, on February 2nd, at the Metropolitan Club in San Francisco.
