We Don't Want Any Crap in Our Wine
The natural wine movement has grown from being an outsider in the wine world to become trendy and sought-after. But it’s hard being a natural winegrower, so it’s a tough and risky life choice. And women are still outnumbered by men, even among natural winegrowers.
We Don’t Want Any Crap in Our Wine is the first book focusing solely on women producers of natural wine. It portraits 9 badass women and explores what drives natural wine producers to do what they do, to go on, despite being outsiders, despite the hardships and the risks.
Meet the women
"It's the best thing I've done, to change careers," says natural wine producer Jutta Ambrositsch in Vienna
“This book strikes a fine balance between useful education and engaging storytelling, bringing the producers and their wines vividly to life. It holds together well as a constellation of women winemakers: each illuminating the other while lighting a path forward for those that would follow.”
“What I loved most about this book is that it illuminates some of the vulnerabilities winemakers face in this industry. There is a humanness to the stories that sets it apart from just another narrative.”
Really enjoying this book!— Lena Mattson, Burgenland, Austria

A beautiful, inspiring book— Heiwon Shin, Seoul, South Korea
"A beautiful, inspiring book on 9 female natural winemakers. This new book sets the bar high for anyone who attempts to follow. Every word, every page takes us back to the basic core of natural wine - why we drink it, why it rings, and why we ought to have respect for those who make it with such humbleness and honesty."
