Love Wine. Love Nature.
My name is Raimondo Boggia, founder of this website.
I am a passionate sommelier, and while studying, tasting, and scoring over 10,000 of the best wines in the world, I learned that many of the ones I loved were organic or biodynamic wines, made by winemakers who sincerely care about the environment.
It was surprising and exciting to discover how many winemakers today farm in a very responsible way without even mentioning it on the label! It happens in Bordeaux and Napa, Champagne and Montalcino, Etna, Burgundy, Côtes du Rhône and Sonoma.
This discovery set me going on this new e-commerce venture, a select and dynamic collection of 120 of the best organic wines in the world. If you wish to better understand our selection criteria, read here.
Michele Fadda joined me in November 2020 as Chief Operating Officer and business partner. Michele worked with me for 7 years across several restaurants that I opened in Los Angeles and New York City and he will guarantee his phenomenal customer care ability to our community of organic wine lovers.
A group of international sommeliers, with whom I shared many pleasant wine discoveries in the last seven years, are also contributing to this enterprise: they will share their knowledge with us, participating in the events that we will start presenting as soon as COVID allows.
What I love most of all is sharing the passion, the stories and the culture of wine, and this is what I would like to achieve with this website.
I look forward to your comments, questions, and suggestions.
