Natural wine producer Francesca Padovani is clear. And so are many other natural growers around the world. Natural wine producers defy modern winemaking and return to artisanal methods. They make wine without additives, without stripping it from its soul with filtration or fining. The natural wine movement has grown from being an outsider in the wine world to become trendy and sought-after. While women are still outnumbered by men, even among natural winegrowers, more women are entering the wine stage now as winemakers and winery owners. Who are some of the badass women who make natural wine in the heart of Europe? Why have they chosen to do what they do? What are their passions and challenges?
Meet nine women from across Europe: among them an ex-graphic designer turned winemaker in the middle of the Austrian capital; the sisters in Burgenland who told their father that they had a plan and that he had to back off; the winemaker in the Jura who trusts only herself and her feelings without regard to what others may think; a steward of nature in Sicily, driven by one thing – to leave a legacy for future generations.
Wine writer Camilla Gjerde and photographer Cecilia Magnusson have met some of the female trailblazers on the natural wine scene, travelling by train and bike in once-obscure wine regions in Italy, France and Austria, to let you take part in nine women’s unique stories.
