What a great article. What it is explained was that when purchasing wines people are looking towards more organic, and regional wineries. Since the beginning of 2000, people has become more aware of purchasing susstainable wines. They say that organic wines taste better and of course are better for the environment.
But what is a sustainable wine? Plenty of sustainable wines are not organic. How do we tell the differance? The sustainable wineries are known to use farming methods that ensure the health of the land for future generations. It is like the saying, teach a man to fish and he will not be hungrey. These farmers make sure that they basically do not damage the soil.
The farmers say their methods cause the land to not dimish in quality or quanitity over time. The sustainable farmers do use chemicals to treat their vines but they make sure they are used in moderation. They use minimal additives such as excessive sulfur.
When we look at the effects of any product on our environment as a whole we know their is always a learning curve and a testing stage.
As we know these methods have become popular not only for wine but for lighting, food, and environmental products.
So, as you read in this brief writing about sustainable wines, I believe this is our future.
