Wine for Thought

Hi, I'm Veronique Raskin and I am the founder & CEO of The Organic Wine Company. My blog is mostly about organic wine & self-development, as well as anything else that interests and inspires me!

Q: What is the typical Alcohol content of Organic wine?

Q: “What is the typical alcohol content of organic wine. I am considering ordering the Chateau Bousquette 2001. I am not very familiar with organic wines but am interested in learning more. 

A: Hello Cathy,
You can find the alcohol content of each wine in the Product Detail page accessible by clicking on each label or link (on the left side) of the shopping cart.
Most of our wines contain 12.5% alcohol which is kind of ideal. The difference is not due to organic growing but to the climate/soil combination between Europe and most of the US. Domestic wines and particularly Californian easily reach 14% if not 15%, which is not necessary nor desirable for the wine nor the drinker!
