In SevenFifty Daily, Amy Bess Cook, who has epilepsy, shares what it’s like to work in a winery with an invisible disability—and examines what the industry can do to create a more welcoming workplace. “Even the most supportive manager cannot compensate for a broken winery workplace culture—one that moves at such an unapologetically lightning pace that it fails to consider the potential contributions of those who work differently…The wine business as a whole can do far more to cultivate curiosity and acceptance and to create a more welcoming and diverse workplace.

Neal Martin delves into Burgundy’s 2018 vintage in Vinous. “The 2018 vintage was the first in the trio of unseasonably hot vintages that introduced a new paradigm, a new normal. It posed a conundrum for winemakers: try to maintain some semblance of their signature style or acquiesce to the meteorological conditions that Mother Nature sets out, uphold the moral duty of translating the season into bottle?”
