Get to Know: Lorna Donohoe of L.A.’s Wilde Wine Bar

Women’s History Month is on it’s way out, but before it goes, we’re shouting out women who are making moves in wine, spirits and the shoe industry… for the rest of the month. Today we feature Lorna Donohoe, the former marketing executive who founded Los Angeles’ new female-friendly hot spot, Wilde Wine Bar and Restaurant. The Hankcock Park bar — named for writer, women’s rights advocate and mother to Oscar Wilde, Lady Jane Wilde — kicked off its Women’s History Month celebration with a special edition of its weekly “Wilde Wonder Women” networking event, where each female attendee received a complimentary cupcake and glass of bubbly.

Additionally, on “Wilde Wednesdays,” there are wine specials, tasting flights, winemaker meet-and-greets and other features that often spotlight women winemakers. Wilde Wine has been highly praised by OpenTable Diners and is already a celeb hangout (Mindy Kaling apparently loves their turkey meatballs in marinara). Lorna shared some wine tips with us, along with what made her name the bar after Jane Wilde and what she sips when she’s off duty.
