Frauen Power '20
**$5.00 from every bottle sale of Frauen Power will be donated to Maggie's Toronto Sex Worker's Action Project **
Originally from Toronto, Alanna Lagamba found herself working in wine in Berlin when she met Martin Wörner, a winemaker in the Rheinhessen. To cut a long love story short, in 2019 Alanna made her first wine, Frauen Power, from a plot of Dornfelder that Martin didn’t know what to do with. Chanelling her Italian heritage, her aim was to make an German Lambrusco, and the results were delicious. In Alanna’s own words: “A self-proclaimed feminist, the idea behind the name of the wine came easily. Being so lucky as to have so many strong and powerful women in my life who inspire me every day, this wine is dedicated not only to them but to all women out there (and all who identify as such).”
Frauen Power 2.0 sets out to make what she described herself as a 'German Lambrusco' - surely the first of its kind?! The soda bottle appearance certainly sets the right tone; this is brisk, refreshing, lightly sparkling and clocking in below 10 degrees of alcohol. Dornfelder and Sylvaner, allowed to complete fermentation in the bottle to create a light effervescence. Whilst not as deep and tannic as Lambrusco, it's a fun reference, and this playful wine is just that.

Maggie's Toronto Sex Worker's Action Project is one of Canada's oldest by and for sex worker support organizations and one of the first sex worker organizations globally to receive government funding.
Founded in 1986, Maggie's was established on the belief that sex work is real, legitimate and valuable work. We are not an exit organization and we believe that whether sex workers choose to stay or leave their industries, we all deserve to live with safety, dignity and respect. To improve our lives, sex workers must take the power to control our own destinies. That is why Maggie’s exists first and foremost as an organization run by and for sex workers, that is controlled by sex workers.
We welcome workers of all genders from all areas of the sex trade - street-based sex workers, exotic dancers, escorts, pornography actors, phone sex operators, professional dominants and submissives, erotic massage workers, web cam workers, and others - to join us in our fight to control our own bodies, sexuality and working lives.
We participate in anti-poverty organizing, racial justice work challenging police violence, LGBTQ2S liberation work, Indigenous sovereignty and outreach efforts, harm reduction work and more.
One of our most pressing political project is the fight for decriminalization of sex work in Canada. We recognize that harmful laws that criminalize any are of sex workers - sex workers themselves, our clients, networks and advertisers - drive sex work underground into unregulated arenas. To decriminalize sex work in Canada - and remove *all criminal laws* that target our communities - would allow sex workers to structure work on their terms, assert their rights as workers and access government aid, community supports and services in stigma free environments.
