Savage Vines was founded in 2017 with the aim of supporting small, independent winemakers from around the world and connecting them to wine drinkers in the United Kingdom. We focus on certified organic and bio-dynamic wines and import directly from the vineyard into the United Kingdom. We are a direct to consumer business model which ensures the winemakers get paid fairly and the consumer gets access to unique, high quality and certified organic wines at a great price.
Savage Vines operates with two primary business objectives. These are Introducing consumers to new grape varieties, new wine regions and connecting them to small producers; and Having a positive environmental impact through the use of 100% recycled packaging, electric delivery vans and supporting winemakers who refrain from using artificial herbicides and pesticides in the vineyard.
At the end of 2020 we had built direct partnerships with over 30 different family run vineyards and have listed nearly 200 different still and sparkling wines on the website. We sell wines from all over the world including France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria, Portugal , Argentina and Australia. By the end of 2021 we will have increased the number of vineyards we work with to 50 and have over 350 wines certified organic in our portfolio.
Savage Vines focuses on 5 key product categories. These are:
Monthly Wine Subscriptions and Gift Wine Subscriptions – A selection of wines delivered each month with tasting notes and a link to a podcast where we talk them through each wine. Those subscribers and recipients of gift subscriptions then receive 25% off individual wines and 15% off mixed cases whilst they have an active subscription should they want to buy more.
Wine Club Memberships – Three tiered membership levels where Members pay into their wine club account each month. Starts at £25 a month for a Bronze Membership, £50 for a Silver Membership and £75 for a Gold membership. Members then can use the funds to buy wine when they are ready at discounted prices off the normal retail. The higher the tier, the more money they save.
Mixed Case Products – Pre selected or themed mixed cases of wine. We do the hard work in choosing the wines and bundle them up for customers based on their preferred styles or regions.
Wine Accessories – Hight quality wine glassware, corkscrews and openers.
Wine Gift Hampers – A range of hand selected wines and food as part of gift sets. Includes Chocolates, Cheese, Nuts, Preserves, Spreads, Dried Fruit and Cured Meats (Launching in March 2021)
