After extensive research, we discovered the perfect production partners in South Africa and embarked on creating the inaugural vintage of Cognato in 2019.
One of the significant challenges we faced was developing an alcohol-free wine that closely resembled a “regular” wine while maintaining low sugar levels.
Our initial offering included Cognato Rosé and Cognato Red, which we launched on the Swedish market in June 2019 through the Swedish state monopoly, Systembolaget. The response from the public and various food and wine journalists was overwhelmingly positive.
Continuing our commitment to innovation, we have expanded our range to include Cognato White, which is now available on the market.
In 2020, we proudly achieved Fairtrade certification as a wine producer. We firmly believe in providing fair and sustainable working conditions for all individuals involved in the production of our wines. By establishing a fully Fairtrade certified supply chain, we ensure that these principles are upheld throughout our wine production process.
