real wine - join Organic Wine Club for the natural wine rebellion

What is a rebel? A man who says no, but whose refusal doesn’t imply renunciation. He is also a man who says yes as soon as he begins to think for himself.

We see rebellion around all the time - you can see vegans to deny buying animal-derived products and households that switch to renewable energy. Our beloved wine club members also also saying no to mass produced chemically neutered wine, they switch to natural wine instead.

The Goodness of Grapes

Posted on 07 March, 2018 by Alexander Thomson-Mclean | 1 comment

Over the last few weeks, I have been on a rather bizarre journey. There are a few parts of our business that I have intentionally swayed away from at times. But now, with many of the aspects of our business left in my ‘very able’ hands, it’s a somewhat intimidating prospect. Mostly having to give any new wines the full respect and scrutiny that they need and deserve, but also having to create some new, hopefully exciting and most importantly accurate blog posts.

An Indie Retailer's Response to Black Friday

Posted on 14 November, 2017 by Alexander Thomson-Mclean | 0 comments

Black Friday at Organic Wine Club

So Black Friday is almost upon us! I have to say, it has never a date that I ever set out to remember, but there is a point in November when your inbox is bombarded with emails that has headers like:

NOVEMBER DEALS, BLACK FRIDY SALE, CYBER MONDAY DISCOUNT!

Honestly, why do we really need to have so many sales?

Should we just embrace Black Friday, jump on the band wagon and accept the huge loss that we know we will end up occurring?

No! We at Organic Wine Club we are saying NO to Black Friday and Cyber Monday! They are not the events that support sustainable businesses. 

Black Friday and Cyber Monday at Organic Wine Club 

This year, we want to do something different. We will re-invest it instead by making a £5.00 donation from every pre-mixed case of wine that we sell to The Cybersmile Foundation.

vegetarian festive feast: organic wine recommendations

This festive season I am on the mission to get more into a healthier plant based diet. It means I am not going to name myself as a vegetarian or vegan, but I will limit my meat intake as much as I can. I am succeeding thus far, but in the last 3 weeks I was trying to research (thankfully I own dozens of cookbooks) and devise a plan for a truly festive but vegetarian dinner. This post is to feature my recipe shortlist and specially selected organic wines for them.
