Amazones, Fleur Godart
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.
'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.
