Now & Then: A unique look at women’s contributions in the domestic wine industry from pre-prohibition through modern day.

Join Rania Zayyat and Cara Bertone of Lift Collective as they outline historical milestones for women in the American wine industry and lead attendees through a guided tasting of women-made wines.

Light bites are provided.

Space is limited, so reserve your spot as this class will sell out quickly!


You will taste wines that are made by a stellar grouping of all-star female winemakers. Guests will have the rare opportunity to do a deep-dive into the women who make the wine in America. Learn the history, hear the stories, and taste the results.

Light bites will be provided.

IMBIBE means to consume or absorb – and that’s exactly what you’ll do in our classes… consume and absorb wine, food, and knowledge.

We host about two IMBIBE classes each month – usually on Wednesdays or Thursdays. These classes are a great way to learn, and engage with other like-minded members of our community.  We have a variety of highly knowledgeable professionals who impart great information, and usually a few good laughs, too!



The safety of our community is our top priority. The Wine & Food Foundation has been adapting plans based on new and evolving information through the recommendations of Travis County, the state of Texas and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Wine & Food Foundation has put important measures in place to ensure the health and safety of our attendees during this event.
