The Good Life
Many of us are making an effort to eat more organic and locally grown foods. That trend is is spreading to wine. Organic wine has improved a lot in recent years, and it’s one of the fastest growing wine categories. John Williams of the Frog’s Leap Vineyard in California is an organic wine pioneer.
“For years and years and years, the holy grail of wine making has been this sense of place in a wine – a wine that’s so distinctively made from the soil, the place that its grown in, that it can only be produced in that place. Its sadly being lost as we become more globalized, there’s a lot of homogenization of wine quality in the world today. The organic and bio-dynamic movement is this idea of going back to this deep connection with the soil so that the wines have this very distinct character of the place that they’re grown.”
That of course, is also the promise of locally grown foods.
