We are not in the wine business: we are in the business of caring.
We have chosen organic wines to support the winemakers who go the extra mile to preserve the Earth. We care about where we all live and if this is our only contribution to this world, we will have done our small part.
We have chosen organic wines because they are so much healthier for our own bodies and for the people with whom we want to share these wines. By choosing organic wines we show our families, our friends, our colleagues, our partners and our customers that we care about them. We care about the health of each and every one of them, and we care about the consequences of what they put in their bodies.
Along with us, you add this priceless value when you choose organic wines; you clearly demonstrate that you want to contribute to and that you care about all of us.
A report by the Pesticide Action Network Europe group revealed a shocking fact. They examined 40 bottles of various wines from popular vineyards throughout Europe. Most bottles contained at least 4 different pesticide residues. Some wine bottles contained as many as 10 different pesticides. Of the 24 pesticides tested, 5 (including the notorious Atrazine) are known to contain carcinogenic and endocrine disrupting properties. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

Think about it next time you are handed a glass of wine and if it is not organic don’t assume uncle Johnny does not care about you, he probably just doesn’t know the facts, because few do. But now you know and you can explain this to him.
You are taking care of yourself, of everyone around you and of the Earth while having a good time. Not too shabby.
