Glyphosate residue in my wine? Quite a while ago I expanded the organic conversation by writing about organic seeds and organic cut flowers. Organic wine is another area to expand your organic awareness to.
Just like organic produce, organic wine comes from grapes that have been grown without chemical fertilizers and pesti/fungi/herbicides, all of which inevitably end up in your body, and on top of it leave of course the soil contaminated.
Organic wines have been shown to have up to one third more of the much talked about longevity promoting antioxidant resveratrol (and which you could ingest in pill form - but it's so much more enjoyable in the form of red wine). Organic wines are also chemical contaminant free, and, depending on the wine, may even be without those added sulfites (the less of those the better as well - that stuff adds shelf life but not health).
Because organic wines are now available for the same price as conventional wines (yes, indeed!), I have switched over to buying organic wines and bubbly exclusively. It's better for my health and it's better for the environment and it does not cost any more money. No reason to buy conventional.
