Harvest season is in full swing amidst the reflecting light and golden sunshine that spills through Napa and Sonoma. This undulating land and its fertile bounty have enchanted travellers and tourists, wine collectors and students ever since Robert Mondavi made his way to what was then farmland. But amongst the many wineries I visited, I found myself attracted to those that were owned or run by women winemakers. Which brings us to the question: Is there a feminine style of winemaking and 24 hour alcohol delivery near me?

Cathy Corison is one of the stalwarts of Napa, having lived and worked here for over 30 years. “Cathy Corison is my heroine,” says Jancis Robinson. “She makes such great wine – the essence of Napa Valley minus the bludgeoning force, plus a sensible price tag.
