Wine Enthusiast B-Corp Certification

We Are a Proud B Corp Certified Company

As a family-owned business, Wine Enthusiast cares deeply about legacy—what imprint will our work leave on the world? In 1979, newlyweds Adam and Sybil Strum created the first catalog with the intention of making wine accessible to anyone and everyone no matter their budget or expertise. At a time when few people had access to the wine industry, the Strums created pathways out of their own passion to spread joy. Since then, we’ve grown into a company that not only sells wine storage and solutions through our commerce offerings, but we’re a brand that educates and entertains through ourWSET-certified academyand media division. Our mission to bring wine to life for all continues under the leadership of sisters Erika and Jacqueline Strum. As the wine industry evolves, so too does Wine Enthusiast. Whether you work within the industry or simply just love wine, this is the place where there’s always a seat at the table.

We Believe

  • Wine is best shared with others and brings people together
  • Wine production relies on the health of the planet 
  • The future of the industry is our collective responsibility

What Is a B Corp Certification?

In February 2024, Wine Enthusiast became a certified B Corporation (B Corp). B Corp Certification is a designation that a business is meeting high standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. This certification is granted by B Lab Global, the non-profit organization that creates standards, policies, and tools to make sure only businesses that are genuinely going the extra mile are accredited.
