Let’s get down to business about these boxed wines. Invented back in 1960s in Australia it has been associated with low quality cheap wines for a long time. Has something changed since then?
Some of you may remember college parties and maybe even some romantic dinners on a budget with boxed wine served in a carafe. Cheap and industrialised wine, full of flavour enhancement additives and preservatives should have also given quite a lot of bad memories about 'mornings after' and hangovers. Ouch.
Yet technology is moving forward and there are some definite advancements about wine in a box.
Here is our monthly review of new wines. So what's new in May? In fact, this edition will focus on a handful of wines that we got back in stock. A few truly incredible organic wines were out of stock after being completely sold out in 2016. It is finally time to open new vintages and enjoy these bestselling wines. Let us showcase 7 organic wines. 4 of them are made without added sulphites, 1 made naturally with extremely low sulphites and 2 are simply of an amazing value.
Isn't it nice to try a new wine from now and then? You can potentially find a new favourite. We at Organic Wine Club taste more than 3000 wines a year only to select 150 that we currently have listed.

Yet today's story is about three new wines that actually made it to our organic wine list!

They are not connected with each other, yet these passionate winemakers aim to represent the area they grow the grapes and vinify their wines as well and precise as they can. Doing exactly that ensures the wine is not out of place but tied to the region’s traditions, local cuisine and, as they say, as nature intended.
It was astonishing to see an immense passion towards wines from Alsace from the local oldest cooperative. It was so contagious that we at Organic Wine Club were truly entertained by the story of Cave Ribeauvillé, which established back in 1885 in France.
Here is a short story about them, their organic and biodynamic wines, which are also suitable for vegans and of course our tasting notes.
This month our New Wines are Spanish speaking: we are taking you on a journey from Rioja to Maipo Valley in Chile and back to Spain, to one of the smallest appellations called Pal des Bages, located in Catalunya.
Check our these great stories behind the wine. Truly inspiring!
December New Wine review includes a special ‘Splash the Cash’ wine and 3 natural wines. One of the three is quite close to our heart as we have visited the vineyards and have a first hand experience how it was produced and met the winemakers.
Let us try to excite you with these organic wines:
