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!


Hi there!

Véronique Raskin - founder & CEO of the Organic Wine Company

Welcome to The Organic Wine BLOG!

There’s a lot that goes into the making of wines, and especially those that use Organic grapes. My family has been making wine for more than 200 years. I found and own The Organic Wine Company, nestled into the hills above the San Francisco Bay.

I love wine, it’s my passion, and so is bringing it to you for your palette to savor and enjoy every single drop from every bottle we sell.

A little about me: I attended the University of Toulouse, and originally came to this country as a psychology graduate in 1973 to meet Dr. Ida Rolf, study her work “Structural
Integration” and write a Ph.D thesis on it. Soon after  I accomplishing these goals, I fell in love, married, and ran a successful professional practice as I made San Francisco my home away from home.

Meanwhile, back in the Languedoc, my 75 year-old grandfather, Pierre Fabre, a Professor of Medicine, was pioneering organic viticulture. He decided to convert the family property, “La Bousquette,” to organic methods and to bottle its wine. By 1980 he had accomplished these goals, and had transmitted me the organic bug. I offered to import the La Bousquette wines into California, to maintain a connection with the family land, and to further my grandfather’s dream. I was passionate about the organic vision, and believed that organic wine was an idea whose time had come.

Little did I know that so many years would go by before these wines and the spirit they represent would begin to get the recognition they deserve. My passion, however, has never diminished.

This blog is being put together so that I may share my experiences with wine, my vision for what I’d like to do for the planet as a whole, and many other thoughts and verses of our lives ashealers that I want you to know about and share with your friends.

I hope you’ll come back here many times to read and give feedback about this novella that I’m beginning on the Internet. I love to write, so this could be long in nature, but I hope and trust that you will enjoy what you read.

I invite you to go to our website and view our selection of wines. You’ll have many to choose from and the prices are quite attractive for any budget. Also, if there’s a special event that you need a wine recommendation for, please send us an email at and we’ll be happy to recommend a bottle from our cellar.

Best wishes,

Véronique R.
