When wineries started going organic, there was a lot of skepticism about the quality they would produce. Instead of focusing only on the aspects of the grapes and the wine making process that improve taste, organic red wine focuses on low environmental impact and fewer pesticides in the final product.
These days there are a whole lot of beautiful organic red wines, in the US and around the world. France has an especially quickly growing tradition of reverting back to pre-pesticide days. Historically, most wine was organic, and adopting the old ways is something French wine makers are happy to embrace.
The results in the organic red wine market speak for themselves. You can buy organic red wines from all kinds of grapes. Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet, Malbec, or a melange – you can find them all in organic versions. If you’ve got a choice, you might as well go organic.
Today, there are environmental benefits of limiting the pesticide and herbicide use, not to mention the fact that we’re not sure what long term effects these chemicals have on our own health. Now that organic red wines are getting better, it’s a pleasure to choose organic.
