Majesties pay tribute to women in the wine industry
Thoughts of the German wine majesties on International Women's Day (March 8, 2021):
1. What do you think of on International Women's Day and why is it so important?
Anna Löffler: "Since there is still a long way to go to global equality for women, International Women's Day is very important! I especially think of women who are still oppressed today, but also of all the strong women who stand up for our rights and have fought and paved the way for equality for women. "
Eva Lanzerath: "On International Women's Day, I think about what we women have achieved in recent years. We have surpassed ourselves and I hope we will continue to fight for equality in the future and achieve a lot together."
Eva Müller: "I think of women's rights and the position of women in society. In my job I often meet men who don't take me seriously and that's annoying!"
2. What do you think of #womeninwine?
Anna Löffler: "Especially in the wine industry, women often act in the background and are not even allowed to vinify in some countries today. That's why I am very happy that we have so many self-confident women in the wine industry today who tackle their dreams and make them come true to keep the wine industry moving forward! "
Eva Lanzerath: "For me, the #womeninwine stands for all women in the wine industry, because they stand behind their passion and their calling with all their hearts and dedication."
Eva Müller: I have to think directly of Vinissima and numerous successful winemakers such as Anette Closheim, Sabrina Becker, Jana Hauck, the wine sisters, Julianne Eller, ... "
3. Which woman is particularly enthusiastic about her commitment and her work and is a role model for you?
Anna Löffler: "There are many female personalities who are characterized by their special commitment in various areas, such as Michele Obama, Sophie Scholl, Sophie Passmann, JK. Rowling, Beyoncé, Luisa Neubauer, Vera Birkenbihl, Mai Thi Nguyen, Marie Curie, Jancis Robinson and many more. But most of all I admire the independent women around me whose energy and commitment I experience. "
Eva Lanzerath: "I am enthusiastic about Meghan Markle. She is a strong woman who stands up for people and women worldwide and fights against racism."
Eva Müller: "Within the wine industry, I am clearly enthusiastic about Julianne Eller and outside of it above all Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Helene Fischer"
