Alanna Lagamba is a female natural wine producer making wine under the name Vin de Lagamba. Alanna comes from Canada, but moved to Germany where she soon fell in love with wine, viticulture, and fellow winemaker Marto Wörner of Marto Wines. Passionate about starting her own project, she bought Dornfelder vines on his plot in Rheinhessen, and soon the iconic Frauen Power was born!
We are proud to be Vin de LaGamba's first client actually, buying the first Frauenpower! There is now also a Rosé Frauenpower as well as various projects she has done with fellow producers like Glow Glow Wines.
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).”
Wines you can have fun with
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!
