Reducing our impact on Earth

We gladly introduce you our supplier Xisto Wines, importing artisan wine from Portugal using traditional cargo ships. The voyage by sail leaves minimal impact on our planet, meaning this system of transport makes our wines positively “as good as local”.

The wine is made by award-winning small producers, who are passionately reflecting the terroir of their regions. They make authentic wines from organic and bio-dynamic farming methods made naturally in the cellar. Their skills and minimal intervention methods produce some of the finest wines Portugal has to offer.

The Circle of Zero Waste

Together they have pioneered the ‘Circle of Zero Waste’ and reconnected Bristol with its twin city of Porto, transporting products fossil fuel free as much as possible. Most of Xisto Wines’ produce is transported by engineless sailing ships from Porto to Bristol which delivers a zero carbon cargo.
