IT STARTED WITH A SINGLE GRAPE
We’ve been busy harvesting red grape cells, but our story dates back 12 years ago when 3 scientists fell in love with the idea of harnessing the benefits of red wine without the sugars, calories and alcohol. They found the answer right under their nose. Trillions of grape cells can be traced back to 1 single grape.
AGE DOESN’T EXIST
Imagine a world where aging doesn’t exist. Kind of like being frozen in time, so you’re unchanged and untouched over years. Well, that’s what we did with the grape. We multiplied the cells from the original source, the parent plant – in our case “a single grape” that was plucked from a small town located smack dab in the center of the Holy Land. We often refer to our first grape as the “Holy Grape” for this reason. We keep the original cell at the same age, constantly. So it doesn’t age, not today, not yesterday and not tomorrow.
THE BIOFARMING PROCESS
With our patented technology, we consistently and effectively harness the power of Piceid Resveratrol from red grapes. We grow grape cells in nutrient-packed water eliminating the need for soil, fertilizer, fungicides, and of course, pesticides.
WE ARE MINDFUL BIOFARMERS
We grow wellness without growing the plant.
VINIA is committed to further reducing our environmental footprint.
- LESS TIME: In 3 weeks, we accomplish what nature does in 1 year.
- LESS WASTE: No chemicals, no hazardous waste, no direct greenhouse gases “GHG” emissions.
- LESS ENERGY: 87% lower energy use than regular industrial production of Resveratrol.
- SAVES LAND: 99.99% less land than traditional agriculture.
- TINY FOOTPRINT: Instead of farms and greenhouses, we grow red grape cells in the cleanest environment possible.
- BIODEGRADABLE: No solvents or pesticides in our manufacturing process, resulting in 100% biodegradable wastewater.
- FINGERPRINT CONSISTENCY: Performed once we will never need the plant again and are able to produce year round with total consistency.
