inspirational interviews with women in the wine industry around the world.



Throughout history, wine was a masculine business, from manufacturer to customer. Although nowadays one can see women in leading positions in the industry, they remain a minority.
HaShizra was established in 2021 as a social business whose goal is to narrow down the gender gap in the wine industry and, to provide professional and business tools to women in the industry. 
We believe that our work will not only promote the women of this industry, but will broaden the circles of all wine lovers and develop the wine and culinary culture in Israel.

"I'm so glad we finally have a community of women, that is so accepting and accessible to women in every stage of their experience in the field".
