We’ve discovered a new paradox:

We all know that Chardonnay grapes are used to make wine, but what happens to the rest of the fruit once it’s been pressed?

Our WellVine™ Coastal Chardonnay Marc ingredient is born in the cool coastal vineyards of California where the world’s best Chardonnay wine grapes are produced. Our proprietary process maximizes the flavor, nutrition, and functionality of cold-pressed Chardonnay wine grapes obtained from elite wineries.

As food and nutrition scientists from the University of California, Davis have noted, our WellVine™ Chardonnay Marc is a “Trifecta of health, taste, and sustainability.” This is the scientifically based paradox the food, nutrition, and dietary supplements industry has been waiting for!

At WellVine™, we’ve developed a proprietary process to dry and mill the grape marc (pomace) into a brand-new superfood packed with beneficial nutrients, antioxidants, fiber, and natural sweetness.

Good for you

As a whole fruit, Coastal Chardonnay Marc is packed with oligosaccharides (prebiotic fibers), polyphenols, flavanols, and catechins including epicatechins and proanthocyanidins. Early science suggests these nutrients help maintain a healthy gut and cardiovascular system.

  • Oligosaccharides, a type of fiber known for their potential prebiotic benefits
  • Polyphenols, including flavanols, are potent antioxidants that also have been shown to benefit human health in myriad ways, ranging from cardiovascular health to cognitive health to physical performance.

Research shows that adding more fiber to your diet is a great way to help keep your body healthy. Prebiotic oligosaccharides are an important part of dietary fiber, and play an important role in gut health. Our WellVine™ Coastal Chardonnay Marc has been shown to contain a remarkable diversity of oligosaccharides, including those resembling oligosaccharides found in mother’s milk.


Good for Mother Earth

By upcycling the Coastal Chardonnay Marc by-product of winemaking into ingredients used in foods and dietary supplements, WellVine™ is pioneering the path to more sustainable wine production.

Wellvine from the vines

From the vines and minds of California Winemakers

It all started with the renowned winemakers at Jackson Family Wines, one of the most successful fine wine businesses in the world. Passionate about finding a way to capture the rich nutrients remaining in freshly squeezed Coastal Chardonnay, they began experimenting. After nearly a decade of experimentation and research, the Sonomaceuticals Team succeeded in transforming pressed Coastal Chardonnay grapes left over from winemaking into the alcohol-free superfood known as WellVine™ Coastal Chardonnay Marc.
