Shopping for Eco-Wines: Easier than You Think

With the holiday season quickly approaching your wine purchases might be on the rise. I always try to seek out the organic wines but usually end up throwing in the towel. The November 2008 issue of Natural Health magazine shared some wisdom to help make wise selections, particularly since labels may not be clear when a wine is sustainably produced.

The following companies distribute wines produced using low-impact farming methods, and the wines are organic or bio-dynamic: Louis/Dressner (French, Italian, Portuguese), Mad Rose Group, Michael Skurnik and Kermit Lynch. If you have time to wait for shipping, The Organic Wine Company has a wonderful selection, much more diverse than Wine.com. If you are in a rush and can't be bothered to check the distributor, never fear! Grab a bottle of Bonny Doon, Grgich Hills, Cline or Tablas Creek.

Salute!

People in California have it easy! Your local wines are some of the best in the world. And buying wine that hasn't been trucked all the way across the country is even better than buying organic/biodynamic wine.

So true, Miles. Almost no matter where you live in California you can find delicious local wines that are better for your body and the environment.
