WELCOME TO OUR WONDER WOMEN OF WINE BOX!

There are lots of amazing women in natural wine and we want to showcase some of the ones we work with in this box by partnering with Wonder Women of Wine to bring a fun mix of wines and natural wine magazine Pipette to celebrate International Women's Day.

For this box, we've taken 6 bottles of what should be over $240 of natural wine and discounted it to $219.95 plus a free Pipette magazine from another wonderful woman in wine, Rachel Signer!

Note: If one of the wines is sold out, we will swap it for another woman-owned wine of equal or greater value!

Here's what's in the box:

Weiss - Nibiru

Whole bunch pressed. FrĂŒhroter Veltliner, GrĂŒner Veltliner, Riesling, MĂŒller-Thurgau, Chardonnay, Weissburgunder, Gelber Muskateller. Fermented in a big oak barrel. On the fine lees until bottling. A few of the grapes spent time on skin, so it can technically be considered an orange wine, but it drinks far more like a white wine! From the Kamptal region in Austria.

Pinot Gris WS - Domaine de l'Envol

This orange wine spent 3 weeks on the skin and looks like a rosé! This wine is actually from a cru plot and has a slightly taller bottle than the rest of the wines to indicate that. A wonderful balance of acid, RS, and tannin creates a full mouth-feel and great texture.

Post Flirtation Red- Martha Stoumen Wines

Notes of ripe blackberry and dried plum balance more herbaceous characteristics of pine and rosemary; plenty of fruit but just enough structure; a buoyant wine that will lift up your palate rather than weigh it down. Best with a slight chill!

Stone Crusher - Donkey & Goat

A wonderfully complex orange wine with dried stone fruit, orange peel, and some tannin to create a structural wine that can stand up to some hefty pairings. The aromatics are balanced by the dry structure, allowing a refreshing feeling after every sip!

RosaPuglia - Valentina Passalacqua

Like drinking what running through a strawberry field would feel like! Then some nice hints of sour cherry, salinity and minerality make this perfect glou glou for your pool or patio day.

Come Together - Old Westminster

A red piquette blended with BlaufrÀnkisch and Chambourcin. Dense ruby purple color. Aromas of bramble and dark plums. Flavors of under ripe raspberry and tart berry jam. A chillable red with low alcohol and tannin to pair with summer foods!

Nibiru - Julia Nather

We came across Nibiru from one of our awesome Instagram followers and they did not disappoint! Taking over their parents vineyard, Julia Nather and her partner Josef Schenter are creating some delicious natural wines in the Kamptal region.

Their vineyards are farmed biodynamically, without certification. Many of the vines are very old and, thanks to their deep roots, bring a lot of liveliness and structure to the wines. You can feel that even with their lightest and most classic wines. The work in the older vineyards is often more complex than in young vineyards, much time is put into the conservation of these.

Domaine de l'Envol - Catherine Hirsinger

We met co-owners Catherine and Raphael via our friends Melusine Wines and already knew a bit about them going into the meeting. The first thing we noticed when we walked in was a photo of Catherine on the wall with a crown. Asking Raphael about this was the perfect lead-in to the story of the vineyard because Catherine was actually the Alsace wine queen (from the wine festival we mentioned above) several years back and this is how she and Raphael met! Raphael had been out on his own growing grapes for a co-op and Catherine’s parents were selling their grapes to the same one. A few years later Raphael decided to make his own wine, as he didn’t feel the co-op was getting the right expression out of the grapes and wanted control over the process. Since Raphael and Catherine were dating they all tried his wines and her parents thought they would also like to control the winemaking process of their grapes. This was the beginning of Domaine de l’Envol!

Martha Stoumen Wines - Martha Stoumen

Martha Stoumen Wines was founded upon the desire to recapture a farming and winemaking culture that has all but faded away: a winemaking culture of patience.

For her wines, she leases as wells as farms around half of the vineyards herself. The other half are farmed by multi-generation farmers who understand their land, and their family's land, and who farm with the same philosophies in mind. Patience in the vineyard means composting rather than adding synthetic fertilizers, allowing predatory insects the ability to outcompete pests rather than spraying insecticides, and doing proper handwork, such as pruning for vine longevity rather than high yields. Above all, Stoumen strives to make wines that are delicious, joyful, and truly representative of California.

Donkey & Goat - Tracy Brandt

Donkey & Goat Winery is owned and operated by Jared & Tracey Brandt in Berkeley, California. They make “natural wines” which is a term that covers both the vineyard and the cellar. That is what distinguishes natural wine– the extension of natural farming philosophies that drive the practices for sustainable, natural & biodynamic farming into the cellar.

Their wines are made from sustainably (or more) farmed vineyards in the Sierra Nevada, Mendocino and Napa. In the cellar nothing is removed and nothing is added save minimal effective sulphur. Sulphur is a contentious issue in the natural wine world. They have made wines with zero sulphur added but in general they do use minimum effective sulphur. Or they use as little as possible and their levels going into bottle fall within the predominant guideline for natural wines in Europe. Their wines are bottled without stabilization, fining or filtration. While not required, they include the ingredient list on their label which is remarkably short: grapes and minimal sulphur. They have made their wines in this manner since they created Donkey & Goat in 2004 and will continue to do so until they stop.
 

Calcarius - Valentina Passalacqua

Calcarius is an avant-garde natural wine project from Valentina Passalacqua, focused on the kimmeridgian limestone soils of her childhood town, Arpicena, at the feet of the Gargano mountains in Puglia. Valentina worked in business in London 10 years ago. After the birth of daughter, Giulia, she felt a desire to return to her homeland and engage more with nature. This area is full of calcerous limestone in the soil, white rocks jutting out everywhere amongst the vines. Combined withe the salty air from the Adriatic sea, and Valentina’s careful picking (much earlier than all of her neighbors of course) the wines of the Calcarius project are all light on their feet and very elegant. Although the wines do receive a small dose of sulfur for stability during travel, they taste like unsulfured natural wines to us, vibrant, and easy to drink. A true reflection of the elegant terroir of the region.

Old Westminster - Lisa Hinton

Old Westminster is my family’s collective effort to put Maryland wine on the world map. We started this endeavor in 2011, the year I graduated college. It’s the result of family discussions on “how to preserve our farm and put the land to work.” We were abducted by the idea of planting a vineyard. We all agreed that growing and making wine that reflects our land through a vineyard was an exciting proposition. As a curious chemist, being the winemaker is a perfect fit for me.
