At The Organic Wine Company, we believe that organic growing is both the honorable past and the certain future of the wine industry.
More and more people are coming to the realization that the application of massive amounts of pesticides and chemical fertilizers are harmful to the environment, public health, and our own bodies. This holds true for agriculture in general, but for viticulture specifically. Grapes receive one of the highest doses of pesticides, and wine grapes are sprayed even more than table grapes.
We are asking wine lovers to take a stand as responsible consumers by supporting a wine industry that does no harm to the Earth or its inhabitants; and instead steers us toward a safer, cleaner path for all.
Generally, the price of organic wines is similar to the price of wines made with conventional grapes. That means that by simply switching your wine buying habits from conventional wines to organic wines, you can make the world a little less toxic wile enjoying high-quality wines without spending more than you do already.
By choosing to buy and drink organic wines, you are:
- Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
- Protecting the health of vineyard workers
- Lowering your risk of exposure to toxic pesticide residues
- Helping small vineyards to stay viable in a competitive marketplace
