Organic and Biodynamic wines are made without the synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides that are used to make most conventional wines. And with 100% certified organic grapes, it's safe to say these wines are better for the planet and our bodies! While we'd argue for choosing organic every day of the year, Earth Day is an especially fitting time to show some love to wines made with our planet's health in mind.
Most of our portfolio is organic or Biodynamic and will pair well with any Earth Day (or Earth Month!) celebration. Below are a few ideas.
