For many of you, the issues of Biodynamic, Organic and Sustainable farming are not important to your wine buying decision making. For others, though, it’s foremost in their mind when they shop for food, wine etc. For us at Top Ten, we are looking to find the best wines possible for our shelves and there are so many great Bio, Organic and sustainable wines to choose from and we want to tell you about them. I’ll refer to them as B.O.S. wine for short. Here is a nice answer to the question about what biodynamic, organic and sustainable viticulture entails. This comes from Wine Spectator magazine’s Dr. Vinny column.

The following are a small sampling of some of the B.O.S wines that we offer. The Moroder and the Saladini come from Conero Natural Park in Italy’s Le Marche region on the Adriatic Sea. Only organic farming is allowed within this region. The Moroders offer a great Agrotourism stop at their winery where they have a small hotel and restaurant on the property. The restaurant features organic produce grown on their estate. Fred and Nancy Cline also have an organic food business operating just outside of Petaluma called Greenstring Farms. All their wines are certified sustainable and they offer tremendous value to the consumer. Longridge of South Africa is new to us but we love it! We also carry their biodynamic Pinotage. It’s unique and delicious as is the red blend we’re featuring this week.
