We make wine that’s meant to be shared.
At Double By Single, we don’t believe in playing small. We don’t think ‘happy’ should be limited to an hour, and we don’t think wine should be kept on a dusty shelf for a ‘special occasion’. To us, every day deserves to be celebrated. (Because ADULTING is hard.)
The truth is, we believe wine is best shared with mates, some damn good cheese(burgers) and laughter. LOTS of laughter. And if it happens to come with a side of karaoke and table dancing? Well, spank our ass and call us Lady Gaga – we’re in. Double by Single is a non-traditional wine label with a big-ass personality to fit the size of our big-ass bottles.We believe good wine – and good times - shouldn’t have to come with a hefty price tag. We’re a brand people can identify with and, most importantly, connect with. (Oh, and we’re fun to drink with too, so there’s that.)
The double by single story
"Why not make a wine that's purposefully designed to bring people together?"
That was the thought bugging wine-lover and Double By Single founder, Georgia Single, for years.
A hardcore fan of long lunches and even longer nights spent connecting, laughing and dancing with friends and family, the budding Kiwi entrepreneur noticed a gap in the market for premium wines at an affordable price and decided to bring together two of her favourite pastimes: drinking wine and having a damn good time.
With a degree in Social Services, a background in mental health, and one foot in the (cellar) door thanks to the family business, Georgia set out to create an iconic brand that sparked togetherness, connectedness, joy, laughter - and a helluva’ lot of good memories.
A future so bright you're gonna need shades.
Double By Single launched in 2019 with an all-star starting line-up of some of the world’s most popular varietals, including a 2018 Sauvignon Blanc, 2017 Chardonnay, 2018 Pinot Noir, 2018 Pinot Gris and 2018 Rosé.
Featuring New Zealand’s finest grapes, an eye-catching design, a bold tone, and more personalities than the cast of OITNB, Double By Single is a wine for the next generation of oenophiles: fun, sassy, bold, honest, generous – and damn proud of it.
Wine this good should be illegal.
(Thankfully, it's not.)
All our wines are from Monowai Estate, a stunning 22ha vineyard located on the northern banks of the Ngaruroro River in the Crownthorpe district of the world-famous wine-making region of Hawke's Bay's, New Zealand.
The property is home to Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grapevines planted in free-draining red gravel with a thin top layer of silt loam, making them ideally suited to the local climate. The grapevines are trained to increase fruit intensity and consistency, while the process of hand-thinning ensures low yields and leaf plucking maximises sunlight and air movement through the vines. (Pretty fancy, huh?)
Our chief winemaker, Emma Lowe, is a bit of a legend when it comes to crafting damn fine vino. Emma graduated with a degree in winemaking from Adelaide University (Australia) and has made wines in Australia, Switzerland, South Africa, France, Chile and New Zealand.
Also: She has excellent taste in music and knows how to pair cheese and wine like no one else.
Warning: The contents of our bottles may cause you to lose your inhibitions, speak the truth, connect with other humans, and hug strangers.
At Double By Single, we believe sharing is caring - and nothing says ‘I give a sh*t’ like splitting a bottle of wine with mates.
More than just another wine brand on the market, Double By Single aims to bring people together to enjoy each other’s company; to nurture relationships; and to encourage healthy drinking habits amongst friends. (In fact, we love our mates so much, we even named our wines after them!) That’s why all our wines come in share-worthy1.5L magnum bottles - to spread the love a little further.
But while we are big fans of a wee glass or two, we also believe that alcohol should be shared and enjoyed in safe, supportive environments (with 2 am pizza delivery, of course). That's why our bottles are intentionally designed for sharing with friends – and not for squirrelling away, or for solo binge sessions while watching reruns of Shortland Street.
Double By Single wholeheartedly supports and encourages drinking in moderation when in the right headspace. If you or a mate are worried about your drinking habits, seek help, okay? A night with us should leave you with memories - not regrets.
