As you know, at Famelia, we do International Women’s Day, everyday! To acknowledge and recognise the importance of this day, I’m super excited to invite you to a ‘Women in Wine Flight + Questions in Conversation’ event on IWD Eve - Thurs 7 March. Joining me to host the night is - Founder of The Georgie Collective (@thegeorgiecollective) - Matilda Coy 💜🪩🥂

With your ticket you will receive a flight of 6 wines, made by women winemakers, and 6 supporting questions to discuss with your fellow table friends. This event is designed to open up the conversation of inclusion in light of International Women's Day, and all genders are welcome and encouraged. The discussions are made more interesting with different voices in the room.

PRICE: 66pp.
Inc. 6 half-glasses of women-made wine, and green Sicilian olives.
