LOS ANGELES, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ — Women & Wine(TM), which has been offering custom luxury wine-country travel for women since March 2005, announces the launch of www.WomenWine.com, the first community for women interested in wine and travel. www.WomenWine.com features custom travel itineraries for women to 24 wine-country destinations worldwide, as well as exclusive wine-themed Women & Wine hotel packages and urban getaways for girlfriends, couples and solo travelers.

www.WomenWine.com Brings Wine Country Home

“If you can’t travel to wine country with us, bring the experience home with www.WomenWine.com,” says Women & Wine(TM) Founder and President Julie Brosterman. “Traditionally, the world of wine — from making and teaching about wine, to buying wine in stores and restaurants — has been male dominated, a ‘men’s thing’, but today women make 60% of all wine purchases and account for over 50% of all wine consumption in the U.S.,” she adds. “www.WomenWine.com will help women find their own voice when it comes to wine and become smarter wine consumers. The site provides a connection for women who share a passion for wine and travel.

Women & Wine at the Forefront of a Hot Trend

Since its founding by Julie Brosterman in February 2005, Women & Wine(TM) has received unprecedented media attention from sources including NBC Nightly News, CNN, USA Today, More, Fit and Travel & Leisure.

A leader in the growing trend in women’s travel and love for wine, Women & Wine(TM) demystifies the wine experience by creating a connection to the places and faces behind the wines, thereby tapping into women’s desire to buy wine based on the “story” more than the “score.”
