The renowned website greencontactbook.com has elected biowinebox as "Brand of the Month". Here their article on biowinebox:
Biowine Box is the first curated organic, biodynamic, natural and vegan wine online shop and subscription service in the UK. Biowine’s ethos is that “nature doesn’t need the intervention of chemicals to produce its magic”. Get The Gloss tested and reviewed, saying: “Totally sold on the natural credentials of Biowine – fewer pesticides and additives are kinder on the drinker, the hangover and the environment, as well as supporting small producers. This is a real treat for the palate; all the wines were smooth, delicious and definitely a cut above”. Biowine is currently collaborating with Pacari Gourmet Organic Chocolate and will be offering an organic chocolate and wine pairing and tasting kit in each box for the month of September.
Organic and biodynamic wine is featured in the Lifestyle section of market.ch.
The article tells the story of Biowine "Biowine has announced their plan to launch the first organic wine subscription box in the UK and Switzerland. Biowine was created both in the heart of the Swiss mountains, Verbier and in the city of London by an Italian mother-daughter team who have combined their organic lifestyle to their passion for wine. Biowine is on a mission to get wine lovers to drink and discover wines that are as delicious as the magic of nature can produce, without any addition of pesticides or artificial chemicals." and talks about the founders Daniela and Stephanie : “Beyond the mission of bringing more awareness and good quality organic wines to the market, what really fascinates me is meeting the amazing people who put their passion and hard work at the service of wine lovers who are health and nature conscious” shared Daniela, the cofounder based in Switzerland.
Stephanie who is the daughter part of the team based in London affirmed that “Organic vineyards worldwide have tripled over the last seven years and there is an important trend onwards biodynamics. Almost a quarter of under 30 year olds in the UK regularly buy organic products. People are getting more knowledge on the production process and want to make a change.”
