Declared by the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) International Women’s Day, on March 8 commemorates the struggle of women for their participation in society on an equal footing. Wine has been a drink associated with men for centuries, but it is already known that there is no gender difference in terms of taste.

Women value and appreciate good wines, even with better abilities, since by nature they have more developed senses of smell and taste. Many women enjoy wine as much or more than men, so do not underestimate their tastes, that is part of a stereotype that does not conform to reality. A proof of this is that Among the seven winners of the Contest for Best Sommelier in Argentina there is only one man.

There are no feminine or masculine wines, there are delicate wines and other more corpulent ones that are better adapted to different situations or foods.

To reaffirm that a woman’s taste for wine is not limited to white, sweet or rosé wines, we suggest four wines for you to toast with her.
