Best Brand: Frey Organic Wines
If you’re drinking conventional wine I’ve got some bad news: you’re exposing your body to high levels of dangerous chemicals.
That’s because grapes are one of the crops most heavily sprayed with pesticides – and often at the top of the Dirty Dozen.
And because wine is the concentrated juice from many grapes (600-800 grapes per bottle, in fact), the end product is a condensed source of these harmful hormone-mimics and cancer promoting compounds.
Frey Organic Wine:
But there’s a safer way to enjoy a grassy Sauv Blanc, a cherry-bomb Cab or a smooth Pinot Noir: drink Frey organic wines.
Frey Vineyards is a family owned an operated vineyard located on the lush slopes of Redwood Valley. Not only are Frey wines organic, but they’re rooted in a tradition of sustainability for nearly 30 years.
And for those of you with sulfite allergies, here’s more good news. Frey’s innovative winemaking techniques avoid the use of sulfites – synthetic preservatives which can induce headaches, sniffles, and other allergic reactions in some people.
Try Frey 2008 Pinot Noir. It’s light and delicate (12.5% alcohol), aged in French Oak, with a harmonious flavor symphony of strawberries, mint and pomegranate.
