After a lot of research, we found the perfect production partners in South Africa and we set about creating the first vintage of Cognato in 2019.
A big challenge was creating an alcohol-free wine that was as close as possible to a “normal” wine, whilst at the same time keeping the sugar levels low.
Initially we produced Cognato Rosé and Cognato Red. The wines were launched on the Swedish market in June 2019 via the Swedish state monopoly (Systembolaget). Both were very well received by the public as well as various food and wine journalists.
We have continued developing the range of Cognato wines and we have now launched Cognato White on the market.
In 2020 we became a Fairtrade certified wine producer. We believe strongly in providing fair and sustainable working conditions for all the people involved in the production of our wines. By having a fully Fairtrade certified supply chain we can assure that these principles are followed throughout the production of our wines.
