No Carbon Footprint to Wine About

Aside from organic food, you can also choose biodynamic (meaning these farmers looks upon the soil and the farm as living organisms and the farm as something that can grow or evolve) or organic wines.

Why?
Organic wine means less chance of chemical insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides on the earth and in your glass.
Supporting eco-friendly farms. Organic farms employ green agricultural methods such as planting cover crops.

Minimally processed and with no added sulfites (a preservative in regular wines), organic wine is easy on your tongue and may lead to gentler hangovers.

Going even greener. Biodynamic on the label means the wine was holistically produced with consideration for the local ecosystem, soil, and even phases of the moon.

Here in Brooklyn, try Prospect Park Wine Shop (which also started selling totes by the way), or Gnarly Vines. Consult your Greenopia Guide or Organic Wine Journal or more spots. Onwards and Greenwards...

Hey Brooklyn Green Team,

Thanks for help spreading the word about organic wine. A little more information for your readers...

Organic wine isn't just less chance of chemicals in your glass, it usually means none at all. See our latest article about pesticide residues found in conventional wines.

Also, there are wines that are organic that do contain a small amount of added sulfites. These wines, in the United States, are labeled "made with organic grapes."

Organic wineries don't always choose to put "organic" on the label - they want to be known for making great wines, not just "organic" wines. So start asking questions and learn the names of the top producers. You'll be very happy you did.
