New Orleans' Business and Social Network for Women
Women & Wine on Wednesdays connects women:
for building new relationships and for re-connecting old ones, through a unique facilitated forum - an ideal opportunity for women in New Orleans who are striving to balance their own needs with those of their families, jobs, community involvement. The monthly events fulfill an ongoing and critical need for women to be able to share resources and discover new opportunities as they transition through the many stages of their lives, providing access to a larger network of both business,social, and community connections - for the growth and development of their professional and personal lives.
Wine, for centuries, has proven to liven the senses, cause thoughts to flow, and enhance friendly idea exchanges - so wine is a perfect accompaniment, blending to foster a relaxed and welcoming environment for sharing resources, idea exchanges, and a great reason to take time to maintain their own personal overall well-being.
Events are held each month on the third Wednesday. There are no dues or fees to participate.
Come enjoy a glass of wine, catch-up with old friends, or meet new ones.

LA CROIX D'ARTON
On the tip of your tongue your taste buds will distinguish the marriage between East and West in the blend of Merlot and Syrah grapes. A blend that is surprising and very successful as we witness in the lively nose that brings us a mixture of red and black fruits with a hint of spice that is dominated by black pepper. This wine has an extremely well balanced roundness, the fresh tang of fruit the combination of which offers us a rich palate in an envelope of pleasant tannins
LES HAUTS D'ARTON
Dry white wine
A combination of the Colombard grape in an 80/20 proportion with the Sauvignon grape. The blend that emerges from this marriage is processed according to a rather classic method that involves primary fermentation maceration, vatting, clarification then vinification. The exuberant nose of this wine never fails to seduce with its notes of citrus fruits and box that are indications of the presence of Sauvignon. This wine is extremely frank and honest. It radiates vivacity and notes of fruits before reaching its elegant finish that is characterised by a pleasant hint of bitterness.
