Our pledge is to donate at least 1% of our annual revenue in addition to any donations that our customers provide. At checkout there is a feature where you can add your own donation if you would like (no pressure!). We spread the funds across our wonderful partner foundations. You may read more about these great organizations in “About Us” under our partner section.
We’ve always believed in supporting organic growers and knew that it would help promote healthier soils and cleaner wines. We buy organic produce and other organic foods every day as a lifestyle choice. It was recently where we learned that healthy soils, void of chemical residues and abundant in microorganisms, have the ability to be a climate solution. From recent research, it is well understood that healthy soils draw in and regenerate legacy carbon from the atmosphere. So regenerative organic farming not only improves soil quality but it also makes cleaner air by clearing legacy carbons. It is estimated that even a 1% conversion to regenerative farming can have a 10 ton reduction in legacy carbon. This was huge for us because it provides an action plan to provide a positive impact. We feel, together with our customers, we can make a real difference and do something to improve the health of our planet.
We are very conscious of our impact on the environment and every decision we make has this in mind. Our model is to offer wines from all around the world, and we ship those wines either in larger volume reusable or recyclable containers, that come to our winery in CA and then are bottled there. By shipping the wines this way we are able to maximize the space on a shipping container and get almost twice the amount on it compared to bottled wines.
On dry materials, when given the option to go with something that may look more premium, but becomes a less environmentally conscious proposition, we always err on the side of our minimizing this impact…We chose lighter weight American made glass bottles instead of heavier, but lower cost, more premium looking bottles that come from overseas. This greatly reduces the carbon footprint from producer to winery to consumer. We have opted to use cork closures with no capsules covering the top of our bottles, using a natural renewable source for closure and minimizing materials compared to metal screw caps or synthetic corks and unnecessary foils. The labels on the bottles are produced from sugar cane, linen and hemp (single season crops compared to paper made from forestry sources). Our shipping packaging is ultra sleek and minimalist, uses materials that ensure a safe arrival at our customers doorstep from SFI certified (forests.org) corrugated, and is curbside recyclable. Our marketing and POS materials use recyclable material that also is printed with vegetable inks.
Shipping and Delivery
All orders will ship 1-2 business days after they are submitted. From then, transit times can range from 1-5 days depending on proximity to our fulfillment center. As soon as your package ships, you will receive a confirmation with a tracking number. If it is late, please email us at email@example.com
Please track your shipment first from the courier info provided on your email confirmations. This will tell you if it was delivered and who may have signed for it. Sometimes a family member or neighbor may sign for it and have your package! If its still missing send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get on the case!
UPS will make another attempt the next day. Please remember, since its alcohol there must be someone over the age of 21 present to sign for your wine delivery. If you are unable to meet the driver after the third attempt, the box will be sent back to our winery. So please make sure you send your shipment to an address where a person over 21 will be there to sign!
Currently we are able to ship to 24 states shown below, with a few more on the way. We have every intention to add more states in the future and please feel free to reach out to us if you live in a state not shown and would like to receive our wine! It is required to be 21 years of age to buy, receive shipments of wine, and sign for the delivery.

Product & Wine
First, the wines need to be made with grapes grown on certified organic vineyards and made without animal products (for fining). We look for smaller growers, family-owned properties who are connected to their land – then partner with them to craft our wines. We don’t partner with large scale industrial growers or huge cooperatives. We need to know exactly where the wine comes from and how it was grown. Our selections have to over-deliver on quality and represent the unique sense of place where it comes from. We want to tell a story so our customers have a true global wine experience.
Oh snap! Send us an email to email@example.com and lets us know what is bothering you about the wine and we will get right on this to remedy the situation!
Our wines are very low in sulfur, but not 100% sulfur-free. All wines have some amounts of sulfur that come in naturally on the grape skins and are a byproduct of fermentation. Sulfur can also be added to wines in order to be sure that it is stable and free of those pesky cooties that can make your wines taste funky. The federal government allows wines made with organic grapes to have low levels of sulfur. Our wines contain very low levels, roughly half the amount of sulfur most conventional wines have. Oh, and regarding the headache myth on sulfur in wine, experts agree that this is related more to alcohol and sugar (so watch out for those high ABV fruit bombs!). What most don’t even realize is the dried fruit in your breakfast cereal contains far more sulfur than any wines!
They are kind of close! The category of “wine made with organic grapes” is allowed to have up to 100 ppm of sulfur added to the wines. Sulfur has been added to wines for generations in order to help with stability and aging. Organic wine labeled with a USDA seal cannot have any sulfur added. Interestingly the European Union and many other areas allow sulfur in “organic wines.” Other than making sure we deliver the best quality wine directly to your door in the condition the winemaker intended, Kind of Wild is most interested in how our wines are grown and how we are impacting the environment. All of our wines are certified organic by international agencies as well as the CCOF and certified vegan by BeVeg.
Kind of Wild wants 100% customer satisfaction. So if something kind of disappoints about the experience, please contact us so we can do our best to correct it. Unfortunately returning wine is not possible in most states. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can discuss the options with you.
