We are an online-only wine shop with our entire collection being completely vegan and sustainably-farmed, consisting of small-production, limited-quantity wines from around the world.
We are always willing to answer questions and there will never be any pretension here at Happiness Quotient! We want you to find fun, new wines you may not have heard of or wines you know you love and want more of. Whether you are just starting to get interested in wine or a longtime oenophile, we welcome you all!
With our monthly wine club, you will receive your chosen amount of our selections, picked specifically for the season, shipped directly to your door, along with suggestions for plant-based food pairings.
Our online retail store will have products that change monthly, so check back often to see what's new! We look forward to you trying our selections!
We are a woman-founded company based in Los Angeles by a 25 year veteran of the hospitality industry. Working in the top restaurants in LA and honing her wine knowledge by working first for a wine broker and then for a wine distributor, she found her love and passion for small-production, off-the-beaten-path wines that are still affordable and approachable. When she became a vegan, she noticed the void in the industry for vegans to easily find these products. She wanted a safe space for them to shop with peace of mind. And HQ was born!
Helping others makes everyone feel good! HQ is committed to donating a percentage of proceeds to local organizations. We will post regularly to keep you updated on which ones we are donating to!
We also believe in using environmentally friendly packaging, trying to give back to the Earth as much as possible. Using recycled or upcycled materials are important to us, every step of the way.
HQ is also passionate about inclusivity and equality. We will never discriminate against anyone, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, citizenship or gender.
