Wine is a product of its environment. Winemakers work hard every harvest to deliver the absolute best wines possible, often presented with ever continuous environmental and biological challenges. If it wasn’t already a challenging endeavour, climate change is now presenting itself as one of the single greatest threats to the wine industry globally. Harvests are getting earlier, and weather events are becoming more extreme. Cold-climate regions, in particular Champagne, are experiencing unprecedented warm vintages, leading to a dramatic shift in the way winemakers think about producing their wine. Whilst so far it means we have seen many great vintages in recent years due to the ripeness of the fruit, there is a tipping point.
So how do we ensure a bright future for the wine we love?
Our Commitment to Sustainability
Here at cuvée we aim to have as little negative impact on the environment as possible to ensure we can continue to enjoy fantastic wine for decades to come.
Where possible, we ensure our deliveries are 100% carbon neutral.
We also ensure all our packaging is 100% recyclable, and is produced using recycled papers, and FSC cardboard stock.
Other Ways to Help
There is also an ever-growing trend (no pun intended) in producing wines that are organic and biodynamic, as winemakers discover it benefits both their crops, and the natural environment. In addition, we are also seeing a big increase in vegan wines over recent years, which is not only exciting for us who are vegan, but also great for the environment too. Our goal is to have a broad selection of organic, biodynamic and vegan cuvées represented in our store, and we have made it possible for you to easily browse those collections.
