What is Organic Wine?
Organic wine is made using only organically certified grapes, grown without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and chemical fertilisers. Since 2012, new winemaking regulations mean the whole process is certified from harvest to bottle and the term ‘Organic Wine’ can be displayed on bottles.
What is Biodynamic Wine?
Biodynamics goes further than organics. Based on a holistic system of agriculture developed in the 1920’s, it’s grown in popularity over recent years, on many estates, showing great results. Focus is on improving soil and plant health, using specially activated composts along with herbal and mineral sprays.
Please have a look around and maybe buy some wine!
Besides improving our lives with Yoga, Baking Bread, Mindfulness and Zoom (yeah right!), we realised we started to drink lots of wine. A lot!
From here, two considerations:
For our health and wellbeing, It became obvious we needed to drink less, and it goes without saying, better quality!
As Boomers we’ve done enough damage to the Earth so far and it would be good if we could find some way of still drinking wine but have less impact on our amazing planet.
We decided to only buy direct from small producers and only organic wines!
Despite us doing a lot of research and I don’t mean just drinking wine (although some of us definitely did!) it’s taken us a lot longer than we thought to find the right producers and the right wines. We find they are full of great flavour and will hit the market in the near future.
We believe that next to the producer’s words, and our personal taste, a panel of “wine tasters” will add to our selection the right authority to trust. Our panel of wine advisors is so far enthusiastic and can’t wait to taste some more and explore more vineyards.
The Wine YOU like is subjective!
At the end of the day to use that well known saying –
“I know what I like and I like what I know”
Instead of worrying about crisp wines, earthy wines, and medium-bodied wines, wouldn’t it just be easier to walk into a wine shop and say, “Give me a very good wine for dinner tonight”? Isn’t quality the ultimate issue — or at least, quality within your price range, also known as value?
In fact, a good deal of wine marketing revolves around the notion of quality, except in the case of the least expensive wines. Wine producers constantly brag about the quality ratings that their wines receive from critics, because a high rating — implying high quality — translates into increased sales.
Degrees of quality do exist among wines. But a wine’s quality is not absolute: How great a wine is or isn’t depends on who’s doing the judging.
The instruments that measure the quality of a wine are a human being’s nose, mouth, and brain, and because everyone is different, everyone has a different opinion on how good a wine is. The combined opinion of a group of trained, experienced tasters (also known as wine experts) is usually considered a reliable judgment of a wine’s quality.
Nice to meet you and I hope you like our selection of Wines.
We've chosen this season a Sicilian selection we hope you like them as much as we do.
