Cru Members


Women Who Wine for a Cause was founded as a group of professional community oriented women with a goal of bringing women together and sharing in ways that made it easy for us to gather.  As the group has grown, requests for a membership group grew as well.  The Cru Membership was born.

What is Cru?

Cru is a wine term used to indicate a high-quality vineyard or group of vineyards. It is a French word which is traditionally translated as "growth", as crû is the past participle of the verb "croître"; it literally means 'grown'.  Cru is also a nod to Crew - which is a group of people that work together. We felt this was the perfect moniker for this growing group.

Who we are:
We are a high quality group of women that come together to GROW professionally and personally by cultivating relationships within our exclusive CRU.

Who we are not:
We are NOT a networking group. While relationships grow organically and naturally within our CRU, we harvest only the best of intentions among our membership!


As a Women Who Wine Cru Member, you will be invited to additional "Cru Only" events through out the year focusing on growing relationships, experiencing our community and expanding your professional and personal reach. 


There are additional benefits available throughout the year for Cru Members from various community partners with which we partner for your benefit!

Past and current partners include:



Cru is a "capped membership" and is intentionally kept small to nurture the growth of relationships.  Join us as we empower one another and learn in and from our community.
