Animal.Wine is a range of three animal inspired wines in a cheeky, trendy design. They stand for natural and authentic wines in the typical style of their respective region. All are well balanced and very aromatic.
The principle behind animal.wine, is a personal connection to the best oenologists in the countries who vinify the respective wines. The oenologist visits the wine growers who cultivate the grape varieties that are typical of the region. He selects the best and most suitable grapes and blends them together in order to achieve top quality and variety. At the same time the oenologist assures that the wines are authentic and a true representation of the traditional variety. The aim is not producing a wine that tastes like all wines of this variety, regardless of where it comes from, but to produce a wine that is as authentic and typical as is known in its area of origin.
