Award-winning Vintage Roots has you covered for Christmas – whether you’re looking for everyday party wines or fine organic bottles for the big day and beyond.
You can even get hold of a special organic port, Napoleon cognac or single malt whisky, as well as a great range of alcohol-free drinks and many pre-set discounted mixed cases that make great gifts.
Flying the flag for organic
As the only UK company to import and retail exclusively organic wines and other drinks, Vintage Roots’ entire business model is built on environmental concerns.
Three decades after they established the business, co-founders Neil Palmer and Lance Pigott continue to fly the flag for high-quality organic, biodynamic, natural and ethically produced wines from around the world. In total there are over 450 organic wines and drinks to choose from, plus the imminent arrival of the company’s first organic tequila.
The environmental focus has also led Vintage Roots to develop own-brand ranges such as Wild Thing, which sees a donation to conservation charity The Born Free Foundation for every bottle sold.
As well as celebrating the sustainability efforts of its producers, Vintage Roots sets strict standards for its own business. Since 2005 the office has been powered by 100% renewable energy and in 2006 the company became the first in the UK to offset the carbon footprint of all its wine and beer imports.

Why to choose purer drinks
Organically grown grapes are pure and free from unwanted chemical residues; no synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fungicides are used and the organic standards for wine mean sulphur dioxide levels are kept to a minimum and sometimes absent.
The environment and the vineyard workers are protected while biodiversity is promoted and enriched – and we doubt you’ll experience a bad reaction or morning-after grogginess.
