How Leading Sommelier Heidi Turzyn Helped Change the Dialogue on Women in Wine | Maxim

So Maxim Magazine – the publication known for publishing provacative photos of models and celebrities – posted a piece that doesn’t seem quite right for its demographic. But I’m glad they did.

If someone told me they were publishing a piece on women sommeliers – I would have expected something much different, if not the opposite of what it did.

The story actually tackles the sexism that wine professionals like Heidi face, rather than glorifying them. So I’m posting it here, in hopes of giving it a wider audience. As I suspect, the many women who would also be interested in this piece, may not ever find it. If it hadn’t been for this tweet, I never would have.
