Avaline (pronounced "Ah-vah-leene") makes clean, delicious wine from organic grapes. Founded by Cameron Diaz and Katherine Power, the brand aims to raise the standard of what’s in your glass and raise the bar for transparency in the wine industry.
We believe starting with organic grapes is the most important step in making a delicious clean wine. Not only do we like the fact that our grapes are free of harsh chemicals, we love that by using organic farming practices the workers on the fields and the fish in our oceans aren’t exposed to them either. By starting with responsibly-farmed organic grapes, we don’t need additives to alter the flavor of our wines. Simply organic grapes, fermented to perfection.
Avaline wines are full of natural goodness and nothing that doesn’t belong—so you can focus on their delicious flavor and those you share it with.

It also includes some that were made with a great deal of creativity, diligence and talent by those who desire to make wine outside of governmental restrictions. These used to be called Vin de Table (table wine) but were renamed to compete with other European countries' wines of similar quality.
