- Q: Where and when was the company founded?
- A: Founded in Denver, CO in 2017 by Dana Spaulding, who is a mom and entrepreneur.
- Q: What is the meaning behind the brand name?
- A: Wander invokes a sense of travel and exploration. The size, shape and look of W+I differs from what exists in the market and is an exploration of new packaging and a new way to enjoy a glass of wine. We also “wander the world” to find the best wines! Ivy adds a green and natural element to the name, which highlights our focus on natural and organic ingredients. Together “Wander + Ivy” is a beautiful and memorable name that speaks to our active and adventurous consumer and incorporates a green, natural feel that ties with the organic and sustainable elements of our products.
- Q: How big are you bottles?
- A: Each bottle of Wander + Ivy is 6.3oz (¼ of a traditional bottle of wine). No more guilt about wasting a bottle!
- Q: Do you offer larger sizes?
- A: We do not. Our focus is 6.3 oz single serve wines, which is ¼ of a traditional bottle.
- Q: Are you bottles glass or plastic?
- A: Our premium and patented glass bottles preserve the romance of wine-drinking.
- Q: What does the “Made with Organic” label signify?
- A: The wines meet all appropriate specifications in the USDA organic regulations. All grapes MUST be certified organic. NO artificial or synthetic chemicals, such as pesticides or herbicides, can be used in the grape growing process.
- Q: Does the wine contain sulfites?
- A: Wander + Ivy wines are “Made with Organic Grapes” which allows for a very small amount of sulfites as a preservative (100 parts per million). “100% Organic Wines” contain zero added sulfites.
- Q: What are the benefits of wines ”Made with Organic Grapes”?
- A: Less chemicals and additives mean a cleaner and natural wine, which leads to less hangovers the next day!
- Q: Where is the wine from?
- A: Each wine is carefully sourced from a different family-owned, award-winning vineyard around the world.
- Q: What do the animals represent on each bottle?
- A: Each animal represents the region where the wine is sourced. Professional on the front, party on the back!
- Q: What is the meaning of the phrase under the animal on the back label?
- A: Under each animal, there is the scientific name for the animal along with “bacchanal” or “bacchus” alluding to the Michelangelo statue of the Greek God of Wine depicting drunkenness. The implication is a drunken animal!
- Q: Will you launch additional varietals in the future?
- A: Yes! We plan to expand varietals as we grow. Please let us know what varietals you would like to see added. We love your feedback!
- Q: Are the wines vegan?
- None of our wines have vegan certificates but we can confirm we do not use any animal products in the wine-making process.
Q: What are the nutrition facts?
We currently do not have a complete set of nutrition facts for each wine, however, we are exploring adding that for future vintages.
We do not add any sugars or artificial ingredients in the wine-making process. All of the wines are made with certified organic grapes, meaning no pesticides or other harmful chemicals were used in the grape-growing process.
Q: What is your sweetest wine?
- None of our wines necessarily fall under the sweet spectrum. The sweetest wine that we have would be our rosé but it's certainly not considered a sweet wine.
- All of our wines are backed by a satisfaction guarantee so there's no risk in trying them!
- Q: Do your wines expire? What is the expiration date?
- Our wines do not have an expiration date, but just as with most single-serve wines, they are meant to be drunk now and not aged!
- Q: Why are there “sediments” at the bottom of my red wine?
- The color and sediment are called tartrates. Tartrates are also known as wine diamonds. They usually appear on the cork or at the bottom of a bottle during aging. Wine diamonds are harmless and are a natural result of the tartaric acid in grapes binding together with potassium found in wine. The small crystals chelate onto the inner bottle surface and then bind to the color constituents in the wine. Because our bottles are clear you may see this vs other bottles that are not clear. Tartrates are pretty neat to look at, but nothing to worry about, as in, the wine is just fine!
