Terra Organica has been sourcing and retailing organic wines for over fifteen years. Seeking to support, promote and demystify what being truly organic means in the wine industry, their curated selections of red, white, rose and sparkling wines allow the customer to understand the story behind what they are choosing and enjoying, and why this is better for the planet.
The Terra Organica team travel the world, seeking out the best organic vineyard to supply wines to their customers. Many of these are family-run or independent vineyards, and all of them rely on biodiversity rather than pesticides to grow their vines, making organic wine a vegan choice also.
Wine expert, and Co-Founder of Terra Organica, Lindsay Talas, says: “, Drinking organic wine isn’t going to save the planet alone, but if we switch to organic wines and food it will help.
Terra Organica wines are Planet Friendly and vegan friendly, but our producers go even further. For instance, the Zuccardi family in Argentina who we work with to create our Terra Organica Malbec and Terra Organica Malbec Rosé produce their own compost and humus with the help of their wormery. They plant winter grass in between the rows of vines to keep the weeds at bay and to fix nitrogen in the soil. They also make their own fuel for boilers and recycle and reuse all the water from the winery. Having their own vine nursery means they are rearing the next generation of organic vines too, rather than flying them in. For them, farming sustainably isn’t just about the land, it is also about the community. Julia Zuccardi says “we are at the service of the community of which we are part”.
Over the last 15+ years, I have been visiting them, I have seen how they nurture, cherish and enrich their local community every bit as much as they do their vines.”
Terra Organica wines are available to buy online and some products are sold through Ocado.
