Fettucine Forum: Wine, Women and Winning

Thursday, May 1 at the Rose Room


Moya Shatz Dolsby, the executive director of the Idaho Wine Commission, will spend the evening of First Thursday talking about two subjects she knows well: women and wine. She'll moderate a discussion about women's challenges and achievements as entrepreneurs in the Pacific Northwest for this month's Fettuccine Forum. She has led the Idaho wine industry since 2008, after relocating from Seattle.

Joining Dolsby will be Kathryn House, representing House of Wine, a firm devoted to analytical testing, wine production consulting and education; winemaker Leslie Preston of Coiled Wines; and Angie Shaltry, who established Periple Wines.

The Fettuccine Forum is produced by the Boise City Department of Arts and History, and gives the public a chance to interact with politicians, artists, historians, activists, advocates and professionals. Fettuccine or a slice of pizza can be purchased for $3.
