Customer Spotlight: VinWine Brands

VinWine Brands is a global company that represents high-quality distinctive wines from smaller to mid-size producers and winemakers in Italy.

“As we bring high quality, distinctive wines to our customers, we share the stories and viticulture that are at the heart of our selected winemaking producers.

We focus in two specific areas: 1) Enhance the wine’s visibility by developing our unique set of collective co-labeled brands and 2) Help customers virtually experience the winery through our proprietary multimedia vinwineXperience™ .”

You can interactively participate and learn more about the wine and winemaker’s activities by scanning the rear wine label. Understand why the wines are selected, and experience  the Italian winemaker’s unique story.

VinWine Brands specialize in sustainability practices- both in the vineyard and cellar- including organic and biodynamic methods.
