As consumers become more aware of health and environmental hazards in agriculture, the wine industry is devoting increased time and effort to the cultivation of organic grapes with the long-term goal of healthier wine, consumers, and profits. More importantly, wine producers have found that they can now make better wine from grapes grown free of chemicals and produced with little or no additives or preservatives. Wine connoisseurs agree with them and have encouraged the production of increased varieties of organic wine. Lavishly illustrated with over 90 photos of organic wineries and wine labels, The Consumer's Guide to Organic Wine is the essential reference for environmentally conscious wine drinkers. Organic wine experts Robert Johnson and Richard Pasichnyk explain how to identify organic wines, provide personal profiles of 24 U.S. producers and 10 importers or distributors representing 40 French, German, and Italian wineries, and present tasting notes to over 200 domestic and imported organic wines available in the United States.
