There are real, tangible and lasting benefits to the environment and the farmers as a result of transitioning to organic farming practices.
Specifically, organic vines tend to need less water applied, because soils are built up with compost and contain more organic matter, which holds water far better. Organic vines have been proven more resilient against increasing droughts and temperature spikes.
By curtailing harmful and unnecessary irrigation practices organic wineries are protecting local ecosystems and preserving their surrounding flora and fauna. By using less water and not tainting the existing water supply with chemicals and Round-Up, the vineyard workers are doing their part to leave the earth as healthy, if not healthier, than they found it.
By drinking organic wines, you’re supporting independent families, their staff and the environment.
