What's the big deal with sustainable vineyards? Organic generally means more expensive, so why buy organic wine? First, a few things about sustainable vineyards. It is simple farming. No nasty pesticides, recycling anything from glass to cork. The sustainable practice doesn't just end with the grapes, it goes all the way into the packaging. The glass bottles that are used are some of the lightest in the wine industry. The labels are all printed on 100% post consumer waste materials stock.
Now, how does the wine taste? Fresh and crisp. It's true, you can taste the freshness in the wine. For example. Snoqualmie Chardonnay Columbia Valley is incredibly fresh and crisp. It is the perfect Chardonnay for non Chardonnay lovers. The first sniff and you are hit in the face with orange blossoms and tropical fruit. Citrus flavors swim over the palate, while a toasted sweet oak linger on the finish. This is truly a Chardonnay not to miss. Safe to say you won't have any leftover for the next day.
Want a Sauvignon Blanc, but don't like the intense hit-you-in-the-face citrus? Snoqualmie Sauvignon Blanc Columbia Valley has subtle citrus on the nose with lime and white peach on the palate. Crisp and refreshing, yet smooth and elegant. The perfect summer sipping, BBQ wine.
Back to organic items being expensive. The best part--aside from the wonderfully clean tasty wines--is the price tag. Suggested retail price - $10.
Go organic. Go enjoy.
