Une Femme is the creation of Jen Pelka, founder of San Francisco/New York champagne bar, The Riddler. Jen runs Une Femme along with her brother, Zach, and the label is intended as a celebration of women at every step of production, from winemakers to distribution. ‘The Piquette’, Une Femme’s latest addition to the lineup, is made from a second pressing of organic pinot meunier (a grape best known for its role in champagne) from the van der Kamp vineyard of Sonoma Mountain. Made by star California winemaker Samantha Sheehan, piquette is an old technique used by farm workers for generations to make a second pressing of wine from the skins, stems, and pulp remaining from the first pressing (old school upcycling!) Light bodied and low-ABV (only 10%), this offers tart, juicy cran-pomegranate fruit with accents of savory herbs and a hint of smokiness! Serve chilled alongside whatever’s on the grill! Organically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
