Organic, biodynamic, sustainable, natural…these terms tend to confuse more than they clarify, particularly within the wine world. Join Adam Morganstern, editor of the Organic Wine Journal, as we explore these terms in depth (and taste some delicious examples of each along the way). We’ll explore the agricultural practices behind such terms, as well as look at varying techniques for vinification and how this translates into what you taste in the glass. You’ll gain an understanding of the the varying meanings behind these terms from country to country – and you’ll learn why many winemakers choose to forsake these labels altogether. We’ll even get to that tricky matter of sulphites, and debunk a number of myths surrounding the subject. Most of all, you’ll walk away with an appreciation for the time, care, and effort that goes into making these very special wines (and hopefully find a few new favorites along the way).
