BRIK Wine Co.

Veneto, Emilia-Romagna, Marche - Italy

The Winery

At BRIK Wine Co., we believe in building things: better moments, better lives, a better planet. We like to renovate, innovate, and make what’s old new again: from re-thinking how our wines are made to how we treat the Earth. That’s why we celebrate industrial design on the label, use earth-friendly packaging, and make terrific wines made with sustainable practices. Each Tetra Pak carton is 100% recyclable and weighs 40% less than glass, resulting in a smaller carbon footprint. In addition, 100% of BRIK's transport has its carbon emissions offset: it’s like the vines grew in your backyard!

Consistent with our eco-friendly mantra, the handful of independent growers and the winemaker behind BRIK are all devoted to sustainable farming. For us, this means the absence of commercial herbicides and pesticides, along with a commitment to both water conservation and energy efficiency. As a result, all vines are dry-farmed and, when possible, grapes are picked by hand. Fortunately, this type of lifestyle is just what you can expect when visiting traditional, hands-on estates in the Mediterranean. For them, stewardship of the earth is all about family (big and small), and something they take seriously as vines are passed down from one generation to the next. Ergo, as you enjoy the wines, have every confidence that our collective decisions – yours and ours – are making a difference!
