The bag of grape
waste

We are proud to launch our collaboration with designer Meng Du and Planet of the Grapes. Unwasted is a bag collection made of natural grape leather, that is created entirely with grape waste from our vineyards.

In order to future proof winemaking we have been analyzing how to optimize and improve the lifecycle and production of our wines. Grape marc is a by-product of wine and today remaining grape skins are sometimes wasted and not used in a valuable way. Meanwhile, the fashion industry is turning animal skin into leather. Tanneries and dying facilities require large amounts of energy and emit chemical waste from dyes and toxic surface treatments.

This collaboration overarches two industries to make two cons into a pro; making use of the product from wine production to create the next generation vegan leather. The designer Meng Du, from Parsons School of Design, New York – used discarded junk lying around in the streets as an inspiration for the squashed shapes.

There will be a showing of Unwasted in Decentraland 24.02.2022 at 2.00 pm.

Dry January
takeover of Zetter
Townhouses

Start off the year in a mindful manner at the Oddbird takeover of Zetter Townhouse in London for Dry January.

For the month of January, Oddbird will be taking over the Zetter Townhouse in Marylebone and Clerkenwell with a full wine and cocktail menu liberated from alcohol. Afternoon Tea at Zetter Townhouses will also be paired with Oddbird non-alcoholic sparkling and low intervention wine.

”Oddbird is the best non-alcoholic wine I’ve ever tasted. It follows my philosophy of minimum intervention wine making in the winery with organic practices in the vineyard. The wines are made by top winemakers like Contrà Soarda and it’s liberated from alcohol by Oddbird. Oddbird is unique in its approach and full of character just like The Zetter Townhouses which are quirky and fun London destinations serving drinks of the highest quality. I’m looking forward to the two coming together in the New Year for the takeover and collaboration.”

– Bert Blaize, Sommelier

What your table
wants for
Christmas

This December we are launching a new limited series of wine coolers by Paula Atelier. And their function serves to more than cooling wine – they are also a piece of art for a liberated holiday table.

A while ago we challenged the norm of cooling and serving wine, with a collection of original coolers in stoneware clay by artist Paula Martinsson. Now we are happy to be able to launch a few more of these handcrafted originals.

Clay is nature’s very own fridge. It has tiny pores in the surface which in turn enables liquids to slowly evaporate. This results in the temperature dropping and the content to stay cold even in warm surroundings. Clay pot coolers, also known as evaporative cooling refrigerators, date back to 3000BC to the Indus Valley Civilization. This genius tech of nature enables wine coolers of clay to cool wine to the perfect temperature.

So now you can serve your holiday beverages the way they deserve.

About the collaboration

Another World’s
First

We want to make it as easy as possible to opt out of alcohol for every conceivable occasion. That’s why we just released the world’s first organic sparkling wine liberated from alcohol – on a can.

A recyclable slim can has in average 3 times less CO2 footprint per liter in comparison to a traditional glass bottle. This is an important step for us towards not only creating products that are socially sustainable but also environmentally sustainable.

Oddbird Organic Blanc de Blancs is made from 100% Chardonnay from the French region of Languedoc-Roussillon. With notes of green apple, honey, lime and herbs, the wine’s taste is fresh and fruity. As always, our wine has been stored for up to 12 months and then gently liberated from alcohol. Now available in Sweden, for purchase at every Systembolaget as well as systembolaget.se

Functional sculptures by Paula Atelier.

Is there a norm within cooling wine? We believe so, and it’s time for it to be challenged.

We are thrilled to announce our latest collaboration – a collection of functional sculptures with artist Paula Martinsson of Paula Atelier. Hand crafted with organic design in stoneware clay, they challenge the norm of traditional wine coolers, using nature’s own cooling function.
