About the Wine

With Frauen Power, Alanna set out to create a 'German Lambrusco' - here is a twist on that style that takes us into rosé territory, with a mix of red and white grapes together. This time the Dornfelder is direct-pressed, its highly inky skin pigment just bleeding into the wine a little, which is then blended with the highly obscure combination of Johanniter, Riesling, Sieggerebbe, and Müller Thurgau, all of which have seen a maceration on the skins.

Extremely light-bodied and thirst-quenchingly drinkable, its ripe red fruits are lifted somewhat with aromatic elements from the white grapes. Despite the low gravity, the wine doesn't lack structure and has a salty, mineral undertone.

About Vin de LaGamba

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).'
