Sabrina Lueck, Ashley Trout, and Sheryl Frye

Are there disadvantages for women in the wine industry?  Advantages?  In what ways are women influencing the industry, both as producers and consumers?  These are just a few of the questions we explore in this interview with Sabrina Lueck, Ashley Trout, and Sheryl Frye.  These three wine professionals allow us to examine issues relating to women and wine from different perspectives.  Sabrina is an instructor in Walla Walla Community College’s Viticulture and Enology Program, Ashley currently has two wineries (Vital Wines and March Cellars) and has been in the industry for 18 years, and Sheryl is a second-year student in the Walla Walla Community College Program.  They’re all passionate about the industry, can’t imagine doing anything else, and feel optimistic about the future for women wine professionals.
