Kuredu Resort Maldives helps protect ocean with Sea Change wines

Kuredu Resort Maldives has introduced eco-conscious wine concept, Sea Change.

As part of Kuredu’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and looking after the environment, the resort is offering Sea Change wine as part of its Kuredu Wine Tour and within the Sangu Wine Cellar List.

Sea Change is an environmental wine concept by ’10 International’, a socially conscious family run wine business.

The concept was launched in response to the huge environmental challenges facing the world’s oceans due to plastic pollution, with the aim to help tackle this global issue by way of generating and donation of funds to key ocean and marine based charities and environmental projects.

The range consists of 3 IGP quality French wines: a white, Sauvignon Blanc; a Provence style Syrah Rosé; and a red, Merlot. They are all produced by Châteaux Canet in Languedoc which is managed according to the guidelines of sustainable viticulture.

Packaging of the product is kept to a minimum. The lightweight bottles are made from 85 per cent recycled glass with no plastic used in the finished product. Labels are made from 15 per cent grape waste and the remaining raw materials are from FSC certified forests. The corks are biodegradable, being made from biopolymers derived from sugar cane.

“Here at Kuredu we are surrounded by beautiful lagoons and the endless blues of the Indian Ocean, where divers and snorkelers delight in seeing the abundant marine life of our surrounding coral reefs and we are very aware of how precious this environment is,” an announcement read.

“Sea Change wines, along with our many other conservation endeavours will help us do all we can to protect the ocean and creatures living there, not only for future generations but for the health of our planet as a whole.”

Located on a 1,800 metre by 325 metre remote island in the northern atoll of Lhaviyani, Kuredu is accessible by a 35-minute scenic seaplane flight from the main Velana International Airport. This 4.5-star resort has 383 rooms, including beach and water villas, making it the second largest resort in the Maldives.

The island boasts a dive and snorkel centre, a water sports centre, a spa, golf and tennis courses, a kids’ club, and an extensive choice of restaurants and bars. Kuredu guests can also dine in 5.8 Undersea Restaurant at the neighbouring Hurawalhi Maldives resort.

Kuredu remains closed due to the travel restrictions imposed by the Maldives as well as countries around the world to contain the coronavirus pandemic. For more information and future bookings, please contact info@kuredu.com.
