About us

Henry Awin
Head of trade

The one you see in the restaurants. 

Pull The Cork is in the vanguard of the esoteric wine movement. We proudly offer consumers sustainable wine, the vast majority of which come from organic producers who use either organic or biodynamic farming methods, fermenting their wine with indigenous yeast and minimal intervention, all the way from the vineyard to the bottle. We are passionate about championing these small artisanal producers who are committed to sustainability, to ensure their vineyards remain healthy and productive not just for now, but for years to come.

Our Ethos

We see people growing more and more conscious about their health and the environment, taking a keen interest in the products they use, where these products are sourced and how they are made” – James Nathan

Pull The Cork was founded in 2018 by James Nathan and Moritz Bak, school friends who wound up working independently in the wine trade – Moritz a winemaker, James a wine merchant. Realising there was a gap in the online wine market, they set about filling it together with mindfully made wines from small sustainable producers.

It’s our intention to make it easier than ever before for you to access delicious, sustainable wines for yourself. If you’re the kind of person who loves discovering new things, who believes in supporting passionate people and who wants to be surprised, then Pull The Cork is the wine partner for you

As a result, the only wines Pull The Cork stocks are a mix of vegan friendly, biodynamic, organic and esoteric wines. You can read about the classifications we use for our wines here.

Sustainable Wine – from grape to bottle, now and in the future

We wholeheartedly believe that the sustainable wine scene has never been so exciting. An explosion of audacious and unapologetic wines has burst onto the stage from a tidal wave of innovative artisan wine producers. As such, we will continue to expand our range with the most sought after and hard to find wines from all over the world. We want to make it simple for you to get amazing, natural wine onto your tables, into your fridges and sloshing around your glasses, so expect to see plenty of new producers on the website, regular wine tasting events and lots of exciting announcements.

For more information check out the Pull The Cork blog and demystify the world of low intervention wine for yourself – we’re going to turn you into a sustainable wine expert because you shouldn’t need a PhD to drink these wines.
