Happy New Year. We wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2017.
This is indeed a special year for 3D Wines as we will be celebrating our 25th birthday. Where has the time gone?
For the past 25 years, we have helped introduce a large number of people to the pleasures of getting to know and understand good wine.
We first started exploring the wine-growing regions of France in the 1980s. We went on long weekends and knocked on the doors of vineyards to discover the best wines at the best prices and in 1992 we decide to made a business out of a hobby.
Starting with one vineyard in the Loire Valley, word of mouth and recommendations soon led to more vineyards and more Partners.
People loved the idea that you could get involved in the whole process of winemaking. The fun of the ‘rent a row’ scheme is that it encourages customers (we call them Partners) to visit the vineyard and talk to the winegrowers about the variety and quality of the wine.
We also recommend and can make reservations in hotels for Partners and organise exclusive events – so it’s a whole experience we offer.
We have developed our own brand of exclusive wines available only to 3D Wines’ Partners. We originally started out selling generic wines but we soon realised that the demand was for exclusive wines that could not be obtained anywhere else but from your own individual patch in Burgundy for example.
Now we offer rows of vines in Appellation Contrôlée vineyards in the main winemaking regions of France; Burgundy, Bordeaux, Beaujolais, the Loire Valley, Alsace, Champagne and the Rhône Valley. The wines are produced for us by award-winning winemakers, and include some of the most prestigious appellations in France.
As well as the vine rental programme My 3D Vines, we also run the 3D Wines Experience – which can only be described as the next level – here Partners can explore whole wine regions, gaining a fascinating insight into different winemaking styles.
Regions include Bordeaux, Burgundy, Loire Valley, Champagne, Rhône Valley, Beaujolais, Alsace and for Partners wanting to travel further afield, Tuscany and New Zealand.
We still stand by our motto – Great Wines & Great Times. What’s not to like about that?
So, from all of us at 3D Wines and our winemakers we thank you for your support over the past 25 years – and we look forward to being of service for many more years to come!
