The article mentions a few wine makers and experts who are women (and we KNOW there are a lot of female drinkers -- wink).

One of my go-to reds is MacMurray Ranch's Pinot Noir. Fred MacMurray may be gone, but his daughter Kate MacMurray is still involved in the winery. Their wines are easy to find in the Northern Virginia area --Wegman's is where I usually go. The extra couple of dollars for the Russian River Valley PInot Noir is worth it, but the Central Coast PInot Noir is just fine in a pinch. I haven't had good luck with their whites.
Speaking of good white wines, Naked Mountain in Markham, Virginia, makes several yummy whites. They also hold various events, such as delicious lasagna lunches in the winter, Winemaker Dinners, and more. One of the upcoming events is a star-gazing evening on the mountain. How fun! Too much wine and I suppose we may start seeing UFOs instead of stars. I'll take my chances.
