And after ?
The Grain de Sail DNA is to always look ahead…
Thus, after coffee, chocolate and wines we are looking to even more ambitious projects. Yes, because one cargo sailboat is not enough! Our ambition is to build a full fleet of vessels to pursue our search of high-quality products within our maritime, human, and environmental adventure.
Our cross-Atlantic voyages
On the first leg of the voyage, Grain de Sail ships specially selected organic and biodynamic French wines to New York City. Then, our vessel sails down to Central America to load up on organic coffee and cocoa beans before returning home to Brittany, where Grain de Sail roasts the coffees and produce fine chocolates. The round trips take around 3 months to complete and occur twice a year, in the Spring and in the Fall.
Our Promise Label
As it’s important for us that, when taking part of the adventure, you can be sure to have great wines, from amazing winemakers working their vineyard in the most sustainable way, and obviously coming to you thanks to our own Cargo Sailboat, we have developed our own label.
Our destination : New York City
To our minds, the Big Apple represents « the American dream ». After all, this is the country where everything is possible. And if it is possible in New York, it is possible everywhere… Isn’t it? New York City is ideally located since it is on the way to Central America, where we stock up on chocolates and coffee before returning to France. This creates a virtuous circle between the Old Continent and the New.
