Living and additive free wines made by shepherds of nature.
We are curators of natural wines. These are wines made without adding or removing anything in the process. That means no preservatives, no pesticides, no added sugars, no excess sulfites, no coloring agents and no commercial yeasts. The aim is for the wine's natural expression to shine through.
We send you four wines every month, personalized to your palate. After you join, we get to know your preferences and help you discover more wines you would like - striking a balance between sending you ones in your comfort zone and gently trying to expand it.
When you join the wine share, you join the larger Thirst community and the perks that come with it. Discounted wines, special events, early access and more. You also join us - a band of independent minded conservationists who believe in sustainable practices and hope to leave this planet better than how we inherited it.
Q. How does it work?
When you join our wine share, we send you a quick questionnaire to help understand your palate. Then every month we send you four wines tailored to your profile. You are billed every month for the upcoming shipment, and are free to skip any month, or cancel at any time - no strings attached.
Q. What wines will I receive?
The wines we select are usually the best we have tried and hence we save them for our members. We aim to match the wines as closely to your profile as possible. Sometimes however, a wine is so good it just needs to be tried, and we include it so you can discover something new and amazing.
Q. When will I receive them?
If you sign up after the 10th, your first box will be ready the following month. Unless you're picking up, your wines will ship via Fedex and reach you around the 3rd week of the month.
Q. How much is it per month?
Membership is $98 a month.
Q. Are there any extra fees?
If you choose to have your shipment delivered/shipped instead of picked up in store, there is a nominal shipping fee. No other fees anywhere.
Q. Can I update my palate preferences?
Of course! We recognize palates and preferences change seasonally, and evolve constantly. Email us if you need to update your palate profile and we will send you the questionnaire again.
