Clean Wine Suggestions

Did you know that most large-volume wines sold in the US are not even based on grapes?  A lot of the 'wines' - and that's a loose term - are just some kind of fruit juice and sugar.  When I tell people that I only drink clean wine now, they have no idea what I am referring to. "Clean wine" is wine made with grapes from a vineyard with no added sugar and little to no sulfites and made with organic and sustainable farming practices.


If you're interested in clean wine, I have two suggestions: 

1) Scout and Cellar wines


From their website: For a wine to be considered Clean-Crafted™, it goes through two rounds of independent lab testing to guarantee that it's free of yucky stuff like synthetic pesticides and chemical additives and has fewer than 100ppm of total sulfites. We also evaluate and review farming and production practices to confirm that they are, in fact, Clean-Crafted. Why do we do this? Because we hold ourselves to a higher standard. Because we're committed to offering a more natural, altogether better-tasting wine experience.


2) Organic wines from Europe are cleaner and less toxic than US wines because of the regulation in the EU on pesticide use versus in the US.  For more information: https://www.mamavation.com/food/wines-without-glyphosate-added-sulfites-arsenic-investigation.html
