Debra Meiburg MW Meets the Winemaker 150: Irit Boxer-Shank, Barkan Winery

Irit Boxer-Shank fills Debra in on the complexities of being a Kosher winemaker, from overcoming the natural urge to lay hands on the barrels, to the slight complication of constant supervision in the winery. Debra asks Irit what it’s like to be, in her words, a “gorgeous blonde female winemaker” in Israel, to which Irit responds positively that although at the moment women are still relatively uncommon in the Israeli wine industry, there is a general environment of gender equality.
