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).

  1. Just wondering if you can help me find a few wines that are organic or biodynamic. I am looking for a sparkling wine and a dessert wine that are well-priced for a party of 36. Any suggestions>

  2. Stellar Organic Winery produces a fantastic dessert wine called Heaven On Earth. It is made from organic Muscat d’Alexandrie grapes that have been laid down on a bed of organic Rooibos (Redbush) Tea and straw. It has won a number of International awards. It retails for around $14 per 375ml bottle. They are also releasing a sparkling wine before the end of the year. Check-out the website for more products from this organic Fair Trade Certified South African winery.
