HaShizra Opening Event
Professional women throughout the country and from all aspects of the wine industry made
their way to Kandinoff House in Jaffa. It was a wine tasting event focused on networking,
and indeed many connections were made. We have no doubt that these connections will
yield collaborations amongst women who work in the field of wine in Israel. As befits a
professional event for women in wine, a variety of wines were poured, all from wineries
where women hold positions at an executive level.
Imported wines from HaCarem were: Allegrini, Antinori, M. Chapoutier, Trimbach, Villa
Maria, Catena Zapata, and Château de la Gravelle. There were local wines as well: Ahat
Winery, Vitkin Winery and Neta Winery. Delectable bites were courtesy of Amita, a bakery
belonging to Michal Bouton and Anna Shapiro.
Tal Tauber Gottesdiner, founder and director of the community, greeted those present and
talked about the future plans of HaShizra and turning it into a social business. Anat Agmon
stunned with her lecture named Stems and Tendrils; the struggle to bear fruit in male
dominated areas and what it takes to climb to the top. And in the end, there was a surprise:
