Organic vegan wine brand Kind of Wild Wines recently launched in the United States. The direct-to-consumer brand was created by brothers Adam and Jordan Sager, who run wine importing company Wineseller, LTD, to help consumers find high-quality organic vegan wine that can be delivered directly to their door. Earlier this year, the duo set up a crowdfunding campaign to help launch the brand, and they hit their $20,000 goal within two weeks.
“For the past 40 years, we have been supplying the country’s top restaurants and wine shops with the world’s best and fully certified organic and vegan wines,” Adam Sager said. “We’ve put in the work by solidifying long-term relationships with the world’s finest organic growers and adopting a minimal impact approach to ensure our customers can enjoy unbelievable wines that also happen to be better for the environment. It’s a win-win.”
Raising the bar on sustainability
Kind of Wild supports winemakers from across the globe who are committed to sustainable farming practices by improving soil health, diminishing soil erosion, keeping natural waters free from chemicals, and having a positive impact on the local ecosystem. The brand’s portfolio currently features six wines from six different countries: one rosé, two whites, and three reds from France, Spain, Italy, Austria, Argentina, and Chile. All Kind of Wild Wines are made with organically grown grapes certified by CCOF and vegan certified by BeVeg (produced without animal products for fining), setting the stage to become the first globally sourced, certified organic, and certified vegan wine brand.
All Kind of Wild dry goods and materials are selected using sustainable, minimal-impact criteria. “We are very conscious of our impact on the environment. For example, we chose lighter-weight, American-made glass bottles that greatly reduce the overall carbon footprint,” Jordan Sager said. “We also use cork closures with no capsules covering the top of our bottles, and the labels on the bottles are produced from sugar cane, linen, and hemp. Our shipping packaging is ultra-sleek and minimalist, produced from SFI certified corrugated, and is curbside recyclable. Even our [advertising] materials are recyclable and printed with vegetable inks!”
Kind of Wild wines are available for sale through the brand’s website and can be purchased individually or through a membership subscription for monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly delivery. Kind of Wild has also committed to donating at least one percent of its revenue to environmental partner foundations such as Kiss The Ground and Organic Farming Research Foundation.
