“It’s not about Breaking Gender roles….” But sometimes you do.
Today’s pairing is dedicated to the women who inspire me. Woman, who fill the Shoes of Expectation and have surpassed them. Today I dedicate this blog to Director Kathryn Bigelow and Winemaker Heidi Barrett.
“ I’ve spent a fair amount of time thinking about what my aptitude is,
and I really think it’s to explore and push the medium.
It’s not about breaking gender roles or genre traditions. ”
—Kathryn Bigelow in 2009
Wine Shoes: Heidi Barrett, is a guiding light for women in the wine industry. Responsible for some of California’s most notable wines like “Screaming Eagle” and “Revana“. I hear references to other female winemakers saying: “She’s going to be the next Heidi Barrett”, an Icon!
Talent is just the beginning of these women to say the least of their amazing products they have created. These achievements have opened doors in different walks of life. Paving the road for more of us woman to take up our heels and step out into the world.
But most of all I hope we don’t see them as just,
women breaking boundaries,
but instead as people achieving their dreams.
We deserve it as much as anyone else.
