Most women I know LOVE food and wine!
For girlfriend get togethers, girl’s night outs, showers, parties, all kinds of celebrations – we like to ‘partake’ together as a way of sharing substance verbally and of the digestible type! In fact, in the book The Tending Instinct, author Shelley E. Taylor, even acknowledges our gender’s bias for bonding over food.
So, we at Girlfriendology (the online community for women based on female friendship which often happens over food and wine!), thought it was a great time to check out some food and wine sites that especially appeal to girlfriends. These are generally sites we’d recommend to our girlfriends – any girlfriend recommendations from you? Please add your favorite sites to the comments too!
TOP TEN WOMEN’S WINE AND FOOD SITES to watch …
- Women & Wine – Obviously, this makes the list. This great site is a lifestyle company that creates signature experiences for savvy women (men optional!) who love wine, food, travel and living well.

It is a completely new way of looking at drinks—as a distinct culinary category, deserving in-depth exploration of history, ingredients, preparation, artistry and consumption. From wine, spirits and beer to coffee, tea and everything in between, Imbibe celebrates the world in a glass.
