The winemaking community can be a male-dominated world, but that hasn’t prevented Frey from making a name for herself at some of the most illustrious estates in France. Frey, who is the winemaker at Jaboulet in the Rhône, Château La Lagune in Bordeaux, and Château Corton in Burgundy, has also worked to institute organic and biodynamic practices at her vineyards, which she believes will safeguard workers from harmful chemicals, increase biodiversity in the vineyards, and, crucially, create higher quality wines. “The terroir has to be lively to give a good expression to the grapes and to the wines,” she says. “And of course, it’s important to take good care of the people in the vineyards.” By next year, wines at two of her three wineries will be certified as organic.
