Three female sommeliers from Dorchester Collection hotels in London, Paris, and Milan are hosting a European Women in Wine Road Trip in honor of International Women’s Day in March.
Vanessa Cinti of London’s 45 Park Lane will kick off the "Women in Wine" series March 6 in London followed by Estelle Touzet of Paris’ Le Meurice, who will lead a tasting in Paris March 7. The road trip concludes in Milan March 8 with Alessandra Veronesi of Milan’s Hotel Principe di Savoia.
In a profession traditionally dominated by men, the Women in Wine Road Trip aims to celebrate female sommeliers. At each event, the sommeliers will lead discussions of wine trends and topics, and wine tastings comparing vintage and recent American, French, and Italian wines. Each event is $156 but guests can book the entire wine trip for $2,600. .
The Women in Wine Road Trip includes a one-night stay at each property, a bottle of wine selected by each sommelier, admission to all three Women in Wine events, a glass of champagne at lunch, and a discount on spa treatments.
