Trailblazing women, including pioneering winemaker Mary Penfold, have been honoured at an exclusive Vogue Codes dinner at the iconic South Australian winery she co-founded, reports The Advertiser’s Anna Vlach.
About 70 guests attended Tuesday night’s Visionary Women Dinner at Penfolds Magill Estate Cellar Door, for what was also a celebration of Penfolds’ 175th anniversary and the launch of its Tribute Range.
The dinner also marked the start of this year’s Vogue Codes national talk series founded by Vogue Australia in 2016 to encourage more women to seek careers in the technology industry, where they account for less than 30 per cent of the workforce.
Vogue Australia editor-in-chief Edwina McCann said the winery provided the perfect setting for the event.
“Penfolds’ heritage and the story of Mary Penfold who taught herself everything she knew about wine and grew Penfolds from a few vine clippings into a thriving business embodies everything we celebrate at Vogue and so many of the extraordinary women who speak at Vogue Codes each year,” she said.
