The new feminist cuvées from Vins & Volailles are here!

· · Comments

Vins et Volailles is an all-female team with a passion for good food and wine, led by Fleur Godart, Louise Los, Marine Philomen Roux and Lisa Le Postec.

Their backgrounds are very diverse, from theatre to tattooing, cooking to oenology, but all come together over a glass of wine. It is after yet another quarrel over natural wine and feminism that the quartet decided at the end of 2020 to launch activist cuvées in collaboration with renowned winemakers and friends such as Mathieu Coste, Athénais de Béru and Julien Albertus.

Toutes les mêmes ('all the same') is a sentence women have heard over and over:  'hypersensitive', 'jealous', 'man-eaters', 'gold-diggers' ... or whatever insecurities men (and some women) need projecting. This label invite ALL women to reclaim this sentence: All The Same may be, but let us be all beautiful, wonderful, resilient, resourceful...! 

'Amazones', by blurring the lines between white and red wine, ask us to reconsider our representation of strong women beyond the usual prejudice of colour, race, sexuality etc (see Wonder Woman's last two movies...). The label represent the Amazons of Dahomey (Benin, West Africa), a contemporary yet rarely depicted real-life amazon tribe. A collaboration with 2Naturkinder.

Tu Dessers Ta Cause is a collaboration with Domaine du Temps Retrouvé, Michael Georget. 'Shooting one's own foot' - because revolutions never happen by keeping quiet or walking the line, protests need to be loud and wild to deliver their message. Media and authorities will focus on the form rather than the meaning of the message as a way to undermine the protesters efforts.

Previous cuvées Putes Feministes and Sorcières are also available in limited quantities.
