Behind the Wine

Our $5 million pledge to save independent wineries

With an ongoing international health crisis, the reverberating impact of business closures – including bars, restaurants and winery tasting rooms – is being felt by winemakers everywhere.

To help the industry and our global community of winemakers, we want to help broadcast the stories of family wineries and winemakers worldwide – and offer them the chance to sell wines while their sales channels are down.

How can we help save the world’s small producers? can give winemakers access to our online platform – giving them the chance to sell wines directly to consumers from our site.

We’ll then introduce their wines to our incredible global community – a combined 500,000 Angel customers here in the US, UK and Australia – as support.

We are so proud to announce that we are making $5 million available to buy wine from struggling family-owned wineries and winemakers. And that support can start today.

If you’re a winemaker in need or know a small winery impacted by the global health crisis, here’s how to know if the fund is right for you:

You are an independent wine producer or winemaker;

You have a proven track record of making quality wines;

You have evidence of COVID business impact;

and approval from any agency or importers to share your wines with us

This is our love letter to the industry. And it’s all for you.

Winemakers impacted by the crisis are encouraged to visit to apply for support from the fund.

We want to hear from any affected independent winemakers, no matter where you are in the world.

As long as you produce top-quality wines and are able to sell to us, we want to hear from you and we want to help.

apparently – once you order from them, you don’t hear anything about your order to let you know when or if your getting it. They have cut their phones off and don’t answer emails in their “chat mail” or direct email or tweets. I’m sure I’ll never see the wine nor my money.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
