Vins et Volailles Putes Feministes
Grapes: Gewurztraminer, Muscat
Vins et Volailles are an all-female wine collective in Paris making and distributing some of the most inventive and exciting French wines today. In founder Fleur Godart's own words: "Here's our plan: to throw delicious bottles at the face of patriarchy. We want to create a safe space for feminism on labels, devoted to fighting all forms of oppression."
Putes Feministes is simply one of the best orange wines we've tried this year. Made from a blend of Alsatian Gewurztraminer and Muscat macerated on skins for 10 days, it's light and gluggable yet insanely complex. Rosewater, tropical guava and pineapple plus ripe citrus with a salty finish. Great name and label also!
