What Are Green Wines [infographic]?
Presented By Wine.com Purveyors of fine green Wines.
While green wine isn’t exactly on the top of my list of pressing environmental issues, it’s worth noting that the wine industry is playing it’s part in environmental stewardship. Perhaps you are a wine connoisseur, you can now take comfort in knowing that USDA certified organic wine really is organic. As the infographic points out, watch out for the actual certification because many wine makers will use the terms “made with organic grapes” which is not the same as USDA certified wine, often due to added sulfites.
Some wine makers are attempting to use different packaging methods for their wine to reduce their packaging and waste footprint. Some are using less glass, while others have switching to using paper-type bottles – showing how deeply infiltrated our way of going green has really become.
Lastly, if you are grape grower and have beautiful vineyards in sunny California, Oregon, or Italy or France for that matter, people like to know if these vineyards are being powered by the sun through solar panels. Many are making the switch to help run their wine making operations, and why not? It seems like a no brainer if they have the land, the sun, and the financial means to do so.
