Wine, Women and Subtle Sexism - CrushBrew

"The current estimation of women in the Australian wine industry is 8-10 percent," says Fiona Donald, senior winemaker at Seppeltsfield Wines.
Some families cannot make it work and so sometimes it is the woman who pulls away from her chosen career," says Donald. Fiona Donald recalls an incident where a colleague suggested that she had slept with a senior male in the company to get her job, although she insists the occurrence of such an accusation was a one-off. Meanwhile Fiona Donald stresses the importance of wineries adopting more flexible working arrangements. "Women are coming into the industry but leaving," she says.

Fiona Donald
Senior Winemaker, Seppeltsfield Wines Fiona is part of the team that applies modern technology to a wonderful old building with great bones and thoughtful design - the recently resurrected gravity winery. With a vision to get this great asset to work, Fiona and her team have increased the processing capacity of the Seppeltsfield winery from zero to 4000 tonnes in two years. This has been no mean feat; the greatest challenge being asking people to work to modern standards in an old winery and to achieve a lot from a little. In a few short years the value of the winery has increased and the wine is highly sought after. Fiona takes an inclusive approach in the winery, constantly seeking information from colleagues to achieve great results, and she shares her experience willingly with students, school leavers, vintage sea-changers and through industry forums including the Australian Wine Industry Technical Conference and numerous wine shows. Fiona is a committee member of the Adelaide Wine Show, a member of the tasting panel of the Barossa Grounds project and a Barossa Grape and Wine Association board member
