Four siblings and a Master of Wine, united by a love of good wine
Over a Christmas dinner in Paris in 2016, we decided to stop talking about the lack of good wine available by the box and instead do something about it. Being better for the environment, causing less waste and less damage to your wallet, we had been wondering for years why no-one was doing it. Convinced also that it is better to select wines based purely on their taste rather than their status, we decided to put together a smaller range of wines that we can honestly say we love to drink ourselves. With Master of Wine Justin Howard-Sneyd leading the charge, we travelled far and wide and sifted through thousands of wines to create our selection.
Now we want everyone to enjoy the wines and believe in the box as much as we do - there are more details below, but please get in touch with any questions.
Ollie – Basically in charge (used to navigate submarines, went to Afghanistan. Two long periods without wine where he had the time to think long and hard about his future…).
Justin – was dropped in a vat of wine when he was a baby and learned to swim quickly. He’s a bit of a wine ninja and insists we call him ‘The Master’
Tom – Operations and stuff (making it all happen – the cogs in the machine and the petrol in the engine).
Beka – All things design and marketing (the older sister, so we are all fairly scared of her).
Alexander – Digital wizardry. A firm believer that the internet has definitely happened, and we should probably be on it. He’s spent most of his life in dark rooms (with computers).
BETTER FOR YOUR LIFESTYLE
AND THE ENVIRONMENT
We believe everybody should be able to enjoy fine wine any way they want. Our BIBs (Bag-in-Box®) suit any lifestyle with practical, financial and environmental benefits.
Want to enjoy a single glass, but reluctant to open a bottle? Having a dinner party, but not sure how much wine you need? Our boxes are perfect. Have however much you want, whenever you want, without wasting a drop. With more of your money spent on the wine itself and the environmental benefits of our boxes, our wines are better for your lifestyle, your wallet and the environment.
You'll never look back.

RED, WHITE OR ROSE
IT'S ALL GREEN
We think wine is best when it expresses its environment and the talents of the winemaker. It’s all about care, passion and love of wine, not heavy handed industrial methods.
From planting vines to creating finished wines our winemakers share our respect for the land and use a low intervention approach. All of our wines are low in chemical inputs and are made using sustainable and traditional methods.
By working closely with these winemakers we also support the local communities and help protect the knowledge and traditions they hold.
We've put together a selection of wines where each is a star in its own right - those wines that once discovered you just have to tell your friends about. Leading this effort is founding partner and renowned wine expert Justin Howard-Sneyd MW. Justin has already revolutionised the quality of wine available in the UK, makes award winning wines himself (see here), and is a Member of Council at the Institute of Masters of Wine.
We’re not fans of mass-produced wines, so we choose wines from small independents that taste amazing, and showcase the terroir of the vineyard and the talents of the winemaker. We select wines we love even if they are not made in great volumes, so our range constantly evolves and changes, which is just the way we like it..
The BIB Wine Company wines each tell a story; they are full of heart and spirit, a tonic for your soul and a treat for your tastebuds.
