On October 29th, 2020, an article appeared in the New York Times reporting on widespread sexual harassment of Master Sommelier candidates and other women affiliated with the Court. Unfortunately, most women saw this as just another day in the wine business, if not corporate American in general. On this week’s episode, I have a conversation with Melanie Ofenloch, wine writer for the blog Dallas Wine Chick, about how widespread sexual harassment is in the wine industry and how it managed to reach the most upper echelons of our business.
