 Five Compelling Reasons to Drink Organic Wine

~Five Compelling Reasons to Drink Organic Wine~

1) Better Flavor and Taste
Organic farming starts with nourishment of the soil which eventually leads to the nourishment of the planet and ultimately, our palates. Perfectly ripened organically grown grapes offer pure flavor and great fruit intensity.

2) Keep Chemicals Out of Your Glass
Two-thirds of all pesticides on the market are not registered under current EPA health standards. Many EPA-approved pesticides were registered long before researchers linked chemicals to cancer and other diseases. Now the EPA considers 60% of all herbicides, 90% of all fungicides, and 30% of all insecticides to be potentially carcinogenic. The bottom line is that pesticides are poisons designed to kill living organisms and can also be harmful to humans. In addition to cancer, pesticides are implicated in birth defects, nerve damage, and genetic mutation.

3) Support Organic Farmers and Their Health
Most organic wineries are small, independently owned and operated family vineyards, concerned primarily with the environment and itsentire life-chain. Farmworker health is a major concern. A National Cancer Institute study found that farmers exposed to herbicides had a six times greater risk than non-farmers of contracting cancer. An estimated one million people are poisoned annually by pesticides.

4) Protect Groundwater Quality
Organic farming protects and conserves our water resources. According to EPA estimates, pesticides are contaminating the groundwater in thirty-eight states, polluting the primary source of drinking water for more than half the country's population.

5) Prevent Soil Erosion
Soil is the foundation of the food chain in organic farming. Due to our history of conventional farming methods, we are suffering from the worst soil erosion in history.

For International Wines we recommend The Organic Wine Company specialized in certified Organic wines.
