Event description
"Equality Can’t Wait" - Wine Tasting and Roundtable Discussion

About this Event

According to the World Economic Forum, it will currently take over 200 years to achieve global gender equality, which means that none of us will experience it in our lifetime, even though we have the power to achieve it sooner. Gender equality is a win-win for all genders and creating a more balanced society can start with raising awareness of understanding the benefits of a more egalitarian society.

Hephzi Pemberton, CEO of Equality Group and Kim Suddens, Senior Consultant of Stannary St Wine Co, would love for you to join them for an evening of premium wine tasting paired with exquisite bites provided by Cabotte, celebrating the achievements of successful female winemakers and discussing practical ideas of how to achieve gender equality in our lifetime. Join the conversation #EqualityCan’tWait.

Wine and Winemakers - sample selection

Chantale Bara – Champagne Paul Bara

Paul Bara, the father of today's owner Chantale, was the first of the dynasty to sell champagne under the brand of the same name in the 1950s. Chantale recalls how this man of character and conviction would often say: ‘We must keep hold of the fields to feed us’. In 1980, Chantale began assisting her father and soon after, in 1986, began co-running the business. The 6th generation, she gets on with excellency by being a partner and also President during 4 years of the Club Trésors de Champagne and by initiating in 2013 a major programme of renovation of the winery to enhance its winemaking capacity and precision. The house style is accordingly generous and rich, the tirage taking place over a minimum of four years in the 100-year-old cellars, dug 36 feet under the property. The champagnes are colourful and rich, voluptuous and honied, yet always finely balanced and pleasingly textured.

Agnès Paquet – Domaine Agnès Paquet

Agnès Paquet is one of our very favourite white Burgundy wine producers, although she also makes red Burgundy in a smaller quantity as well. Her wines are stylistically very elegant, mineral, and polished, with an emphasis on purity. She uses oak sparingly and bottles her wines unrefined and unfiltered. Agnès hadn’t necessarily meant to take over the family business, but jumped into winemaking when her family threatened to sell some of the vineyards they own in Auxey-Duresses. Instead of letting the family domaine be dismantled, she took the reigns and gradually increased her vineyard holdings with some savvy purchases to include vineyards in St-Aubin and Chassagne-Montrachet.

Amélie Berthaut – Domaine Berthaut-Gerbet

The clamour that now surrounds this domaine is quite extraordinary. Amélie has only been in charge since the 2013 vintage but already her wines are highly sought after and mostly sell out en primeur. Based in Fixin, she has inherited vineyards from both her father and her mother, who shares a domaine with her sister (Amélie’s aunt) in Vosne-Romanée. As a result, she has amassed a fascinating array of appellations, from Côte de Nuits Villages up through to various Grands Crus. In many ways it is what she has done with her vineyards in Fixin that really excites and marks her out as a winemaker of great talent. In a bygone era, Fixin used to command both a reputation and a price on a par with the most illustrious vineyards of neighbouring Gevrey-Chambertin, yet for the past few decades, it has been languishing in the doldrums. To highlight its undoubted potential, Amélie has separated the various parcels she has and produced a string of different cuvées which show the complexities and intriguing characters that would have got drinkers excited in previous generations.

Any profits will be donated to Kiteka, a charity that disrupts gender inequality through technology in Africa.
