SPECIALLY SELECTED ORGANIC, BIODYNAMIC AND NATURAL WINES DIRECTLY SHIPPED FROM FRANCE TO NYC BY OUR OWN CARGO SAILBOAT
Grain de Sail believes in tackling the impossible! Our adventure begins in the French vineyards and ends in your wine glass in New York City.
Thanks to the power of the wind, we ship wines and spirits from France to the United States of America with the lowest possible environmental impact.
We believe the traditional way of transporting by sailboat puts not only sustainability back into the mix but also people. It’s no longer just wines, it’s wines that sail made by and for the adventurers.
As the world’s only commercial exporter of fine wines by cargo sailboat, we have the tough responsibility of filling the limited space in the hull with the most deserving beverages. (Yes, that means we force ourselves to taste all of them…with moderation of course!)
We call it « retro-innovating« . This is something we kept in mind in all the development of our adventure. Using a sailboat to ship goods between the new and the old world seems «déjà-vu», doesn’t it? Several centuries after the first adventurers, we are still harnessing the power of wind but with the help of the latest navigation technologies. Retro-innovation is also about finding other innovators in the wine industry who are inspired by ancestral techniques while bringing a modern vision to what wine can be today.
