About Divas Uncorked:
Since forming in 1999, this group of ten vivacious women from Boston have since expanded their monthly intimate get togethers to include special wine centered activities for the public, along the way fostering relationships with vintners, sommeliers, and wine educators and have recently formed Collaborative Consortium, a novel joint business venture with several California wineries to make the wine world less intimidating to women and people of color. In 2006 the group launched its own private label Chardonnay. The group now offers a Divas Uncorked scholarship for the study of wine. Their journeys into the world of wine have been chronicled in O Magazine Newsweek, Heart & Soul, Working Mother, the Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, and the Boston Business Journal.
