organic: a lifestyle and these wineries are livin’ it

Earth-friendly and organic, as a lifestyle,  is something that is emphasized to the younger generation now more than ever. With Earth Day  this Sunday, April 22nd, this week has been ‘Earth Week’ in Noblesville Schools and not only is my son participating in a tree planting ceremony, his spelling words for the week include reduce, reuse and recycle. Words we’ve all heard, but some take to heart more than others.

The same is true in the wine industry. Some wineries practice biodynamic farming, sustainable growing, and organic alternatives to pesticides and even go so far as to produce their own energy on site to run the complete production leaving a very minimal carbon footprint. In honor of Earth Day 2012 we’d like to honor those in the industry who herald this message, embody the lifestyle and truly live the meaning of reduce, reuse and recycle.

Hats off to the following organic and sustainable wineries for all they do for our Mother Earth! You can show your support for the valiant efforts of these vintners by remembering them the next time you’re shopping for a great wine. And stop by V&T on Saturday, April 20th from 11-3pm and sample some our featured organic wines for Earth Day!
