The Hidden Sea, self-described as ‘an Australian wine brand with a conscience’ has partnered with the ReSea Project to release a 2021 Vintage Shiraz.

Danish company ReSea Project invites businesses to accelerate the efforts needed to solve the ocean plastic crisis.


For every bottle sold, The Hidden Sea works with the ReSea Project to remove and recycle the equivalent of ten plastic bottles from the ocean. 

The Hidden Sea co-founder Justin Moran said that a supportive customer-base, market partners and retailers had helped the brand to make a difference.

“We’re not creating another drinking movement - customers who buy a bottle of our new Shiraz will be helping us remove plastic bottles from our oceans and waterways.

“Cleaning up the oceans was always our number one mission,” Moran said.

For the 2021 shiraz, a wet winter, mild temperatures and periodic rain allowed the shiraz vines to produce a healthy canopy and the best growing season in recent years, with very little heat stress experienced across the growing regions.

The Hidden Sea 2021 Vintage Shiraz is available online and from selected BWS, IGA Liquor and Thirsty Camel retailers – RRP$19.90.
