Let's start with the most important bit: the wine! All of our wine is vegan. Traditionally, wine was filtered by using animal products like casein (milk protein), albumin (egg white), gelatine or isinglass (fish bladder protein). Frankly, that sounds disgusting, so we'll only ever stock wine without any animal products.
The wine has to go in something. All of our wine bottles are made of glass (obviously), which is recyclable in your recycling collection. Some of the wine bottles we ship are also made out of recycled glass, but this isn't always the case. We're working with our producers and suppliers towards ensuring every wine bottle we sell is also made out of recycled glass.
Corks and caps
The corks from your wine bottles can be composted in your home composting. Screw caps from bottles can be recycled in your home recycling collection. Please screw the caps back on before recycling your bottles.
Before we send your wine, we store it in our warehouse. Our warehouse runs on 100% renewable energy, provided by Opus Energy. We recycle every single piece of waste, so there is zero waste to landfill from our warehouse or offices.
Our wine comes from all over the world, so we've ensured that the transportation of every single bottle is 100% carbon neutral. We've worked closely with our suppliers and shipping providers, so that all unavoidable carbon emissions are offset.
Next up is the boxes your wine comes in. These are beautifully simply FSC-certified, sustainably produced cardboard boxes which are 100% recyclable at home in your recycling collections. Our next step is to make them 100% recycled.
But before we send your wine, we have to seal those shipping boxes. The tape we use to seal and secure your boxes is 100% recycled, 100% recyclable and 100% bio-degradable. It's our favourite part of the packaging!
We will keep this page up to date over time to match where we're at on our journey.
