Three for one wine
Dear friends of good taste, may we invite you on a wine-tasting journey through time? Just prick up your ears. We do the work - or Sebastian, because he symbolically takes over the microphone:
Up until a few months ago, we were just three buddies who liked to enjoy a good glass of wine when we were together. But let's be honest: Even the stressful end of the day or the romantic dinner with the sweetheart are worthy occasions to pop the cork. I love wine and I would have loved to have poured myself a fine drop at home every now and then. But then there is my partner (hello darling, of course I love you more) who abstained from alcohol and thus thwarted my wish countless times. A large bottle of wine, all to myself - sounds tempting, but is too much even for me as a wine enthusiast.
Better yesterday than today, a solution had to be found. So, without further ado, I went on an interesting, but unfortunately futile, tour of discovery through a wide variety of wine shops and wineries. True to the motto "who buys wine in small bottles anyway?" Not even the universal problem solver "Internet" could remedy the situation. My search for clues "for the cat" turned into a musing "for the wine" and ultimately the lack of alternatives led to the birth of the "half bottle".
Questions upon questions arose. Building the online shop was just the tip of the iceberg. The fact that Arndt and Christian came on board as outstanding partners was the absolute bull's-eye for half bottle.
At this point, a special thank you goes out to our clever companions Paulina, Julia and Anja - without your brutal but valuable honesty we would have suffered a little less in the last few months (and would not have been where we are today)!
Our mission: Make the half-bottle socially acceptable in Germany. Our tools: conscious enjoyment, best quality and the fight against everyday wine waste (it hurts us wine lovers in the heart). Join us on our journey and always remember: "A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine" (please don't take it literally, but you can enjoy it with a clear conscience every now and then). A big thank you from us to you - because without you there is no us.
Your half-bottle team
