  • Not That Easy Being Green (Wine): Review of Two Books

    …. On the demand side I see green wines as part of a bigger movement. A friend pointed out to me that consumers who shop at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and other upscale supermarkets simply expect that the products they find there will be organic — and are turned off if they are not.

  • It was Josmeyer’s imagination

    … Domaine Josmeyer Christophe Ehrhart has a very real and specific goal as custodian of the vines and as a collaborative winemaker at L’éclat Josmeyer. “To avoid oxidized, unclear and unsound wines.” Erhart’s reality lies in his exacting state of certified organic and biodynamic agriculture.

Anyhoo…organic wine, biodynamic wine – all great ideas that minimize our impact on the land…

  • Mendocino County’s green wine growers

    … for his 24th consecutive annual certification inspection as an organic grower of wine grapes, herbs, and beef. His absence was understandable to all assembled, as the event was focused on Mendocino County’s organic and biodynamic grown wine grapes and the wines made from those grapes; all of the winery owners present had been through similar…

  • A quick tasting note: Si Vintners Sophie

    Dear blogger, I have to say that it’s nice to get emails from afar, but it’s even nicer when these emails state that the reason for their contact is due to this blog (yes, this very blog you are reading – for the first time in 3 months – yes, I know..).

  • Biodynamic Rheingau Wines from Peter Jakob Kuhn

    … open and we were greeted by Andreas Spreitzer. We first apologized profusely for not having made an appointment and then asked if we might be able to taste some wines. He asked us to come into the house (it was a crisp morning and he could probably see the goose bumps running up and down our bare legs). Standing in his living room, he delivered…
