Here Alanna Lagamba set out to make what she described herself as a 'German Lambrusco' - surely the first of its kind?! The soda bottle appearance certainly sets the right tone; this is brisk, refreshing, lightly sparkling and clocking in below 10 degrees of alcohol. Dornfelder and Sylvaner, allowed to complete fermentation in the bottle to create a light effervescence. Whilst not as deep and tannic as Lambrusco, it's a fun reference, and this playful wine is just that.

We recommend ensuring this wine is thoroughly chilled before opening as it can hit the roof if not! Best to have a glass on hand to pour it straight into... yes, this is a lively one...

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).”
