Avaline is a company founded on raising the standard of what goes into your glass. Avaline makes clean, delicious wines with organic grapes. Transparently produced, full of natural goodness, free of unnecessary extras. To start we’re launching with a range of clean delicious wines for your everyday.
Avaline was founded in 2018 and officially launched in July of 2020.
Cameron and Katherine’s journey to start Avaline began with a personal desire for wines with fewer, better ingredients and greater transparency. Their mission is to champion a new standard for what goes into your glass, starting with wine.
Avaline (pronounced /ah-vah-leene/) is a woman’s name that means sensitive, humble, and lively. After looking at hundreds of names, Cameron and Katherine actually found this name in a baby naming website.
For Avaline, clean means always using organically grown grapes, vegan-friendly (we never add animal by-products), no colors and concentrates or unnecessary sugars, keeping sulfites always below 100ppm, when needed, only NOP (National Organic Program) approved ingredients and of utmost importance, being transparent.
Well, we may be a bit biased on this one, so we’ll let the reviews speak for themselves. On wine.com all Avaline wines have 4.1 stars and above and several of our wines have been awarded 90+ point ratings.
According to the USDA, in order to be able to say that our wine is Made with Organic Grapes the following have to be true:
- 100% of the grapes need to come from Certified Organic vineyards. The US recognizes the organic certification that is obtained by each of our producers: the Competent Body of Catalonia (Spain) and Bureau Veritas Certification (France).
- Yeast and any other agricultural ingredients are required to be produced without excluded methods (like genetic engineering).
- Any additional ingredients have to be specifically allowed on the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances and can't exceed 5% of the total product.
- The wine must contain less than 100ppm of sulfites.
The wine industry is regulated by the TTB, not the FDA. This means that unlike other packaged foods and beverages, wine brands are not required to disclose ingredients or nutritional information. In the United States, over 70 ingredients can be added to wines without any disclosure. You can learn more about the common additives here.
All of the ingredients in our wine adhere to the guidelines set in place by the USDA for wine that is Made With Organic Grapes. You can see a full list of our carefully considered ingredients here.
