farmed wines. The list gets longer every year and we should all be pleased; in the long run it’s better for the wine, for us and for the earth. In honor of Earth Day I rounded up a few (there are so many now) of my favorite earth-loving wineries.
Wine Testing Tour Boidynamically certified; which is nothing to sneeze at, as biodynamic classification is even more rigorous than organic certification. The winery’s Perfect Circle wines (look for the designation on the label) go a step further with a percentage of their proceeds donated to non-profit organizations that focus on: youth education in organic agriculture, preserving heirloom agricultural products, or developing sustainable farm energy programs.

This means no artificial fertilizers, chemical pesticides, herbicides, plant growth regulators or genetically modified organisms. Lapostolle Cuvée Alexandre Syrah Las Kuras 2009 is the winery’s inaugural 100% certified organic vintage. Going forward, all of the wines from the Cuvée Alexandre tier will be certified organic starting with their 2011 vintages. The winery has also implemented the use of lighter weight bottles, 14% lighter to be exact, for all of their Casa wines and most of their Cuvée Alexandre wines (saving more than 320 tons of glass from being transported yearly).

I consider myself very, very fortunate to have had the opportunity to taste a lot of unique and excellent wines over the years. From food & wine festivals to vineyards visits, industry tastings to Vegas splurges, and especially in the homes of wine-loving friends, I’ve had old and rare Burgundies, vineyard-only wines that are never sold elsewhere, famed Bordeaux, and obscure California cult wines.
White Wine In India Along the way I have learned that there is no such thing as a “best” wine, and each great bottle and varietal is suited to certain foods or occasions. But that does not mean I can’t have a favorite. I do, and it is Caymus.
Wine Testing Tour Enjoying wine is part taste, part emotion, and with Caymus the latter plays a role for me. I can clearly remember the first time I ever had it: I was having dinner at the Game Creek Club , an excellent ski resort restaurant at the very top of Vail mountain, open to the public only for dinner. You have to ride a gondola and then a sno-cat to get there, and the menu is heavy on game, like elk and Colorado buffalo. It was 1998, and the person I was having dinner with chose the wine. When the Caymus arrived and I tasted it, I remember being blown away, not just by the taste but by the texture and body – it was a transformative moment, the first time I ever felt like I was eating wine rather than drinking it. No taste of wine I’ve had since has been as profound, it was a reminder how great wine can be. It did not so much overwhelm my food as make it seem irrelevant. From the first sip, that dinner was about the wine.

The wine world includes a lot of small, family-owned producers. Many produce good wines, and a multitude don't. Occasionally, however, the results are outstanding -- truly among the ranks of the region's very best.
White Wine India That's the case with Charter Oak -- a tiny, Napa Valley based producer that operates out of a family's backyard and basement cellar.
White Wine In India I first encountered Charter Oak wines at a trade tasting in 2008. I tasted two more of their wines at the ZAP Zinfandel Festival this year, where the wines stood out as not only complex and rich but also more elegant and balanced than virtually anything else I tasted that day.

In the wine world, it's actually fairly easy being green. What's hard is labeling your product to reflect those practices.
Indian Chenin Blanc An alphabet soup of federal bureaucracies has prevented winemakers from keeping pace with other food purveyors in labeling their products "organic." The result is a lose-lose scenario: Vintners using all manner of eco-friendly practices get little or no credit on labels, and consumers who want to embrace organic wines have few tasty options.
Indian Late Harvest Chenin Blanc (dessert Wine) About 30 percent of Oregon's vineyard acreage is certified organic, biodynamic or "salmon safe," but just try finding an Oregon wine with "organic" stamped on the bottle.
