Vin de LaGamba, Frauen Power Vol. 3
Light and refreshing, full of brambly fruit and gentle tannin. A Germanic Lambrusco, if you will.
Place: Rheinhessen, Germany
Colour: Sparkling Red
Originally from Toronto, Alanna Lagamba found herself working in wine in Berlin when she met Martin Wörner, a winemaker in the Rheinhessen. To cut a long love story short, in 2019 Alanna made her first wine, Frauen Power, from a plot of Dornfelder that Martin didn’t know what to do with. Chanelling her Italian heritage, her aim was to make an German Lambrusco, and the results were delicious. In Alanna’s own words: “A self-proclaimed feminist, the idea behind the name of the wine came easily. Being so lucky as to have so many strong and powerful women in my life who inspire me every day, this wine is dedicated not only to them but to all women out there (and all who identify as such).”
