eco.love wines are made in New Zealand at the first carboNZero certified winery in the world. This means a sustainable approach to farming, composting and winemaking, utilizing clean production methods throughout. They use recycled glass for their bottles, natural inks for labeling and ensure the continual restoration of a natural wetland habitat beside the winery.
The McBride sisters were born in Los Angeles but raised a world apart in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
Andrea spent her early years in New Zealand as a free spirit and budding athlete playing in her uncle's modest but beautiful vineyard and exploring every nook and cranny of Marlborough wine country. Robin grew up in the central coast of Monterey, California, riding her bike, wandering barefoot, and picking fresh fruit and flowers from her neighborhood.
It wasn't until the sisters were fully grown that they were told about each other's existence. The girls shared their first embrace in NYC, and despite their bi-cultural upbringing and the years spent apart, they hit it off instantly.
We believe that everybody can be innovative and creative in their own way ... eco.love Wines is our way. It's our vision to create wines that enrich a celebration of life, beauty and optimism, for the betterment of humankind. eco.love Wines is all about being accessible, beautiful, sustainable, and delicious!
Once the sisters found each other, they didn't let go. Andrea moved to California to pursue athletics and academic studies at USC – and to be closer to Robin, who was balancing a successful career with being a mom to three wonderful children. It wasn't long until they began to realize just how special their relationship was.
The unique aspects of their personalities combined to form a solid partnership which, along with their combined global perspective, a desire to take care of the planet, a love for good wine and an ability to dream big, led them to start eco.love Wines. Today, Andrea and Robin are rarely at a distance; they are business partners, best friends and sisters who spend their time laughing, working hard and supporting each other, always.
