Id imagine that in somewhere like a winery that it would be a health and safety issue to let a customer into staff only areas.
How is this any different to a restaurant? Ive been to dozens of restaurants that dont offer anywhere private to breastfeed or pump? So long as they dont try to stop a woman from breastfeeding or pumping, its not discrimination.
I will agree however that the staff members comments were uncalled for.

Agree with most others.
I don't think the winery was obliged to offer her anywhere private. It would have been nice to accommodate her if they were able, but I certainly wouldn't look down on a business which wouldn't.
The comments/treatment from staff were unacceptable & unprofessional.

I know the woman who this is about. If the staff had treated her with respect she would not have gone public. The way she was spoken to by the manager was absolutely disgusting.

The word discrimination is so often used incorrectly. It's not discrimination if someone is rude to you. That's just someone being rude.
Nobody told her she couldn't pump. That would have been discrimination. End of.

Of course no one is expecting to have a lactation room available in any and every business. But everyone should be expecting to be treated respectfully.

They weren't obliged to find her somewhere but the rudeness and immature attitude of the staff member is pretty sad. A bit of education would go a long way there. As others have said, why not ask to use the bus, or even bring a nursing cover of some kind? I think it's awful they were so rude to her but I also see that she could have been better organised and made arrangements ahead of time.
Edited to say- it could be discrimination though, I think I'm wrong- not about the pumping bit but just reread the act and you aren't allowed to treat a person less favourably on the basis of them being a breast feeding mother
