Green for less: Three easy steps to greening your wine


Science extols the benefits of a glass of wine a night. But how to make that beneficial pleasure fit into an eco lifestyle? Below, find our handy guide for three easy ways to make wine a cost-effective, eco-friendly part of your daily life.

1. Buy Organic Wine

Organic wine is my favorite. Vineyards that choose to go the organic route opt out of using any chemicals: no pesticides nor herbicides on the grapes, and no sulfites used in the preservation of the wine. While most wine snobs would turn their nose down at a wine made without sulfites, truth be told many people who suffer from sulfite allergies can be saved with an organic bottle. And with the wide variety of organic wines currently out in the marketplace, you'll be able to taste the difference in a pure wine.
