Why in a box?
After decades (and generations) in the wine business, we came across a statistic that amazed us. More than 2/3 of glass in the US is not recycled and ends up in a landfill. Not only that, the carbon footprint to produce and transport glass is immense. This got us thinking on how to wine better. Enter box. With 50% less of the carbon footprint and far more efficient to transport, it just makes more sense than the traditional glass bottle.
Embracing change doesn’t mean sacrificing quality. We found the best of both worlds in the box. Born out of deep love for our vineyards, we knew that wine could be gentler on the earth, so we started by reducing the fuel and resources it takes to produce and ship heavy bottles around.
We also got tired of pouring half a bottle down the drain the day after we just wanted one glass of wine. The fact that boxed wine stays fresh for up to 6 weeks after opening fits in perfectly with our quality of quantity lifestyle.
Our wines are made with great care for the land and its fruits and hail from the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains in the South of France’s Languedoc region. Grape growing here dates back to the Greeks in the 5th century BC. Today it’s an epicenter of sustainable farming and winemaking, with hundreds of small family run grape farms making a living selling their grapes to people like us.
