Drinking wine shouldn't be bad for the planet - so we've done something about it.
Terra - Europe’s first Carbon Negative wine - is now available in the UK.
You can purchase it from our shop as a case of 3 (£26 per bottle) or 6 (£24 per bottle), and we'll plant a tree for every bottle sold.
A labour of love, a source of stress, old friendships tested, new friendships made. This one is close to our hearts. We’ve been working with Italian winemaker Vignaioli Contrà Soarda for over two years to create a genuinely sustainable wine and it’s pretty special to get to share it with the CJ fam.
And if that wasn’t intoxicating enough, Carbon Jacked members get a beaut 20% off (always), so check your email for the code or sign up now to fight climate change and enjoy some vino.
For those who just want to get drunk on fine wine (and not help save the planet), for one week only, non-members can get 10% off with the code WINEJACKEDLAUNCH - just enter at checkout.
So, speaking from experience, trust us – it tastes good and it’s good for the planet, but if you want to know more, read on.
El vino will flow,
Jacques, Jack, Nikita, Anya and the CJ Team
Pairs well with the environment
Terra is a Veneto Rosso IGT produced with Marzemino Nero, a local grape variety from Northern Italy, and Merlot, an international variety that nevertheless shows Contrà Soarda's strong terroir character.
The grapes are sourced from a single vineyard site in Bassano del Grappa, only 40 miles away from Venice, where the vines grow on steep slopes, old volcanic soil and are constantly exposed to the sun from sunrise to sunset. At 300m above sea level, and nestled in the foothills of the surrounding mountains, it's this microclimate that gives the wine such a distinctive taste – spicy, fresh and well-structured.
Sustainable from grape to glass
To create Terra, we analysed Contrà Soarda's winemaking process from grape to glass to produce a truly sustainable wine that combats climate change. The launch of Terra follows a rigorous and verified assessment of Contrà Soarda's entire operations (including their supply chain) to understand, measure, reduce and offset twice the greenhouse gas emissions associated with its production. The bottle itself is as sustainable as can be – from lightweight recycled glass and a natural biodegradable cork, down to the truly unique bottle seal made from natural beeswax from the vineyard's estate.
More details on Terra, what it means to be carbon negative, the incredible projects we support, and our approach to sustainable winemaking can be found in our brochure and in our sustainable wine series of blogs.
We do everything from carbon footprint assessments and calculations, to assisting with sustainability strategies, setting net zero targets, environmental comms, content & marketing and providing employee sustainability memberships. Basically, we are experts in helping businesses combat climate change and becoming more sustainable.
