The Bee's Box story began with a bee that grew to a swarm. Unsure of what to do with a swarm of bees on a property full of guests, we did what anyone would do – we Googled it. And so, with a brand new bee suit, a Youtube video, and a glass of wine, we set out to create our own bee's box on the property to keep everyone safe – not least of all, the little pollinators who chose us as their home. As we became more attached to our little friends, we also became more aware of their plight (habitat loss, disease, and overuse of pesticides). Already passionate about all aspects of sustainability, we wanted to do something to help protect them. And so, Bee's Box Wine was born. Great wines that give back 10% of the profits to organizations fighting to protect these little pollinators who have sustained us for so very long. So let's fight the good fight together, glass of wine in hand, and say cheers to good food, fine wine, and our beautiful little pollinator friends.
