Is Organic Wine Better?

It’s no secret that ‘organic’ just sounds better.   Many  people easily make the transition to buying organic produce, but we often get asked what’s really the payoff to switching to less-obvious organic products?

Let’s take wine for example (after all the holidays are coming up and for some that means ‘social lubrication’ is on the incline!)

What makes organic wine special?

A truly organic wine is made from certified organically grown grapes. This means that the grapes are grown without pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers.

Grapes are typically a heavily sprayed fruit. (Ever taste a unwashed , non-organic grape?  There’s usually a nasty film!) The pesticides sprayed can turn into residue in your wine.

The chemical residue from insecticides herbicides, and other chemicals  sprayed on grapes gets absorbed by the soil and  into plants through their roots.

If that’s not reason enough – some people say that organic wines are much tastier. This makes sense because the fruit has a more concentrated flavor without the use of chemicals.

The bottom line? When you buy organic wine you’re choosing a better option for the environment and your body!

Many local spirit stores now carry affordable  organic options. Cheers!

  1. The thing is just like always – about money. Organic planting is much more expensive, so the prices are also higher. There is no doubt about that. But there come of course many benefits – taste, less chemical elements. Everything comes with a price.

  2. Hi Tom,
    I recently tried Red Truck’s Organic Zinfandel . It’s affordable and a nice pick for the holidays!
