The story behind the Wolf & Woman labels

A few years ago, Jolandie’s husband sent her a quote that he said reminded him of her. It read: “Some days I am more wolf than woman and I am still learning how to stop apologizing for my wild.” A while later she was at the airport and while waiting to board, she went into a book shop and saw the book Women who run with the wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estés. She immediately thought about that quote that Gustav had sent her and bought the book.

After reading it she felt inspired, empowered and able to dream bigger and wilder than ever before. The book opened her eyes to the fact that the ‘wild woman’ is naturally creative, passionate and instinctive. These are characteristics she believes are crucial when you make and live wine.

The back label of the wine reads:

There are many parallels that can be drawn between women and wolves. Loyal protective, wild and beautiful, both know the unknowable and sense the unseen. This wine is inspired by the fierce, untamed nature of these glorious creatures – and Clarissa Pinkola Estés, who first put it to words.

May all women get to know their wild side, be free and brave, run naked in the forest and dance with the wolves.
