VIN DE LAGAMBA
How it started
Alanna LaGamba moved from Toronto, Canada to Germany at the age of 25, where she worked in the restaurant and bar scene in Berlin before meeting winemaker Martin Wörner (of Marto Wines) at a wine fair. She asked Martin if she could help him with his next harvest - he agreed - and soon she had fallen in love with wine, viticulture, and also, Wörner himself! Passionate about starting her own project, she bought Dornfelder vines on his plot in Rheinhessen with the aim of creating a German Lambrusco, which she felt would be perfect for it - boy was she right!
FrauenPower is born - Vin de LaGamba's first vintage
What resulted from her first vintage was FrauenPower - a fruity, fun, red pet-nat with explosive energy. This debut wine is deliciously approachable - perfect for pizza or grilling, parties or Netflix on the couch. Both an ode to her Italian heritage and to the women around her, feminist LaGamba says “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).”
Time for more fun wine!
LaGamba’s mantra is to drink wines you can have fun with, and that manifests through her winemaking. She continues to experiment but sticks to sparklers; she has since produced three additional bottles, including ‘Mehr Frauen? Ja Bitte’ (More Women? Yes Please’ - another juicy sparkler), and a new vintage of FrauenPower plus a rosé FrauenPower, too. We can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!
