The best brands of natural wine and where to purchase it


All you oenophiles out there! The weird (frightening) realities of conventional wine are revealed as we discuss why natural wine is the path to a healthier, more conscious, more transparent future. Today’s post has me incredibly pumped! For this exposé on conventional vs. natural wines, I did a lot of research, and I have to admit that some of what I discovered astonished me. I’m a wine girl, you see.

I enjoy a nice glass of anything—red, white, pink, sparkling wine, etc. I adore the stories, artwork, provenance, and conversation that good wine inspires. In college (when I first learned about libations), I didn’t really differentiate between cocktails, but I did start to monitor.

In my mid-20s, when I discovered certain foods actually benefited or hindered my body, I overindulged. Beer is mainly out for me now that I’m mostly gluten-free (apart from the occasional inadvertent restaurant encounter) (not worth the epic headache). Spirit-based cocktails are entertaining, but they aren’t my go-to beverage.

I’m a wine girl, not beer. A straightforward glass of wine is my preference, whether my husband and I want to toast to the end of a long week, my parents are searching for something special to go with our Sunday Family Dinner grass-fed steaks, or I’m spending quality time with pals. I enjoy crisp rosé in the summer, chilled whites in the summer, and rich reds in the winter.
