Welcome to Sustainable Wines UK!
Hello and welcome to the launch of Sustainable Wines UK today!
This is a long-treasured project and I hope that you find something to surprise and delight you amongst our products.
Wine can be one of the most heavily sprayed, fertilized or otherwise manipulated agricultural products. Which is unlikely to be good for anyone's health!
So here at Sustainable Wines UK our mission is to help the UK market to discover wines from outstanding global sustainable, organic, biodynamic and natural wine producers. Better for you and for planet Earth! We support producers who are working towards passing on their healthy land and wine heritage to future generations.
We think you'll agree when you taste wines that have been less chemically tampered with, that they taste cleaner and more delicious, telling you stories about the terroir where they were grown. It's fascinating to find out more about each producer, their land and their personal approach to the work they love.
I have focused on NZ wines to start with as these are the regions that I know best, there are a dozen NZ producers here so do take a look! I also have an English producer, and several French and Italians. All committed in their ethos and land guardianship and producing delicious wines.
Today I will be going to the NZ House 2014 New Release Wines event to taste some of the new wines and look for more sustainable NZ producers who want to enter the UK market. Then later I will be meeting some Australian natural winemakers to find out more about them and their wines.
Reports on both events to follow.
I hope you enjoy looking around the site and do send me your feedback!
