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!

After much review and many lively conversations among all of us here at OWC, we have finally approved our new two page “Organic Wine Primer.” The Primer is a short guide designed to provide you with the basics of what you need to know to make informed choices when it comes to buying organic wine.

Why was this such a challenge? Well, as Cicero once said: “If I had had more time I would have written a shorter letter.” It may not look like it, but many hours of care went into drafting this little document. We tapped a couple of experts to ensure we were being accurate on the sulfite issue, which after nearly 30 years is still a source of confusion for wine buyers and consternation for wine producers. If you have ever asked yourself the question: “Should I worry about added sulfites?”, you will want to take a look.

1.) Eco-friendly
2.) Green
3.) Sustainably Farmed
