- Soft and fresh organic sauvignon from Spain, at a great price.
- A donation from every bottle sold goes to the Born Free Foundation.
- Vegetarian Society approved, and also suitable for vegans.
- Three pioneering brothers run the estate, which is also a mixed farm.
An easy drinking, dry sauvignon blanc from sunny southern Spain. This is one wine in a group of four that carry the ‘Wild Thing’ brand name (also Wild Thing Merlot, Rosé and Prosecco) developed, selected and designed by Vintage Roots in association with the Born Free Foundation back in 2010.
Since then tens of thousands of pounds have been raised to directly benefit conservation and animal welfare. The longstanding organic and biodynamic estate is run by the Parra family who are committed to – and indeed pioneered – organic wine production in this area. Hep wildlife and enjoy great organic wine at a very reasonable price!
Setting the standard for green drinks
Vintage Roots is the award-winning and leading fully organic, ethical wine and drinks business, and has been since 1986. It’s a privately owned business run by Neil Palmer and Lance Pigott, who are passionate about placing the environment, sustainability and people’s welfare at the centre of their trading. They work hard to provide the very best organic, biodynamic, natural wines and other drinks (organic beers, ciders, liqueurs, spirits and alcohol free), offering attentive service to customers and the best possible prices.
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. Last year saw the introduction of a ‘Vine to Lips’ logo, designed to communicate the company’s carbon commitment. Vintage Roots also supplies to many shops, restaurants, hotels and bars across the whole of the UK.
Organic roots – organic drinks are more popular than ever, but do they cost more, do they still give you a hangover – and are they made from carrots?
