Wine Democracy is a concept that means different things to different people. At its heart is the simple principle that the world of wine should be accessible to all, regardless of income, status, background or ethnicity. This thought-provoking book draws upon a series of in-depth conversations, each approaching the subject from a refreshingly different perspective, while unravelling some of the thorniest questions now facing the industry, from the role of technology and the inaccessibility of “winespeak” to the impact of discrimination and misogyny in the sector. Wine Democracy is packed full of real-world experiences from those who live and breathe wine, as well as those who have come from communities and backgrounds previously excluded from the world of wine – what barriers do they face and, more importantly, how do they overcome them? Following recent scandals that have rocked the industry, Wine Democracy puts the sector under the spotlight and offers some very practical recommendations – a wish list of takeaways - to drive the change needed to make the world of wine a more equitable and accessible space for all, a true Wine Democracy.
