Stephen Asprinio discusses organic wines.

Nov 7, 2007

Organic wines are growing in number, but the number of options are still lacking. As the demand increases for wines of this nature, we are sure to see a correlating increase in the supply within the wine market. One example of an excellent organic wine is Robert Sinksey Vineyards in Napa, CA. The wines are grown organically, and produced using biodynamic practices. The wines are high quality, and the price point is reasonable. Robert Sinskey Vineyards is a great example of where the fine wine world is moving.

Then there are other organic wines such as Bonterra, which I find to be mediocre, and consequently do not represent the organic wine movement in the best manner. As more organic wines in the same family as Robert Sinskey reach the market, we will begin to see a shift in purchasing patterns of wine consumers. Buying organic wine is not only a wise decision for one’s self and personal well-being; It is a decision to support what is right and best for our environment, replacing toxic substances with natural ones, prolonging a sustainable environment and ecosystem, and simply drinking wine that not only helps us to feel good, but helps the earth to feel good as well.
