About the winery:
The Coppola winery received a special Sustainable Winery Award in 2017. With this new Bee's Box project, they want to protect bees, an important factor in the biodiversity chain. 'Great wines that give back 10% of the profits to organizations fighting to protect these little pollinators who have sustained us for so very long. So let's fight the good fight together, glass of wine in hand and say cheers to good food, fine wine and our beautiful pollinator friends.'
