She Directed – Celebrating Female Wine & Film Makers With Chloe Wines




This post was created in collaboration with Chloe Wine Collection. As always, all opinions are my own.

Spring has officially sprung here in Boston and you know what that means; it’s time to ditch the winter coat, reclaim the patio and make the switch from big, bold red wines to crisp, refreshing whites.

Funnily enough, I’ve always considered myself a red wine girl, but apparently making the move from Dublin to a city that actually experiences more than one season has changed me. These days, the minute temperatures hit 70 (who am I kidding, the minute they hit 55 – we are talking about Boston after all) there’s nothing I enjoy more than a glass of Pinot Grigio down by the water.

That being said, I’m relatively picky when it comes to my wine. In fact, since being introduced to Chloe Wine Collection (by my husband who picked up their Prosecco on a whim simply because he thought I’d love the bottle – Ted, you know me so well) their portfolio of elegant yet approachable wines has not only become my go-to but their Pinot Grigio is now the only white wine I drink.

Named after the ancient word for blooming and developed by acclaimed winemaker Georgetta Dane, Chloe wines were created for wine enthusiasts who appreciate timeless, crowd-pleasing varietals. Boasting the most beautiful notes of crisp apple, juicy peach and soft melon, Chloe Pinot Grigio is the perfect choice for anyone who appreciates a fruity but refreshing wine as much as this girl. Of course, I can’t possibly talk about Chloe Wine Collection without drawing your attention to one extraordinary detail, a detail which takes my love for the label to a whole new level! Winemakers, have you ever stopped to consider just how many of them are women? Sadly, the answer is not a lot, which makes winemaker Georgetta Dane and her incredible achievements with Chloe wines all the more admirable. Even better yet? They aren’t stopping there. Always striving for equality, Chloe Wine Collection is working to make positive changes within another male dominated industry; filmmaking.

Chloe Wine Collection is recognizing and rewarding women in the director’s chair through the 2019 She Directed female filmmakers contest. In partnership with Women In Film, Chloe Wine Collection will provide four female filmmakers with a professional mentorship from industry veterans, and one grand prize-winner with mentorship plus a cash prize.

Fancy yourself a filmmaker? Submit an original short film or an excerpt of a feature film that puts women at the center of the story for a chance to win. For those of you who aren’t quite so creatively inclined, you can always make like me and simply raise a glass to your fellow girls!
