I am a writer, blogger, kvetcher, single mom but mostly eater! Sometimes it's fine dining, sometimes it's cooking in-- but living in Manhattan, that's a rare treat. I mean, if you lived surrounded by more restaurants than apartment buildings, wouldn't you be tempted to never cook?

Organic Wine: Part I, the test. 

Tuesday, March 16, 2010 8:15:21 AM

I decided to do some research this weekend about Organic Wine.  And, you should know that, despite the fact that I LOVE wine, well, I usually wake up with a hangover and sometimes, an upset stomach as well after only like TWO glasses of wine.  Not good for someone who loves to have a glass or two (or three sometimes).  So, I hop over to my local (well, not exactly neighborhood, it was on Columbus Circle-- a 45 minute schlep by subway, bus, train and plane.)  The store, 67 Wine, features over 200 bio-dynamic and organic wines.  I am not going to bore you with all the detailed definitions and had myself a handy dandy organic wine fest.  Perfect thing to do on a rainy Saturday while the rest of the east coast is under water from the torrential downpour happening this weekend. And what I discovered was...great wine!  Without all those nasty preservatives like copper (did I say copper?? YES I did).  You are sometimes ingesting copper when you drink wine--but not bio-dynamic wine.  The downside is that I didn't find an organic, all natural wine that I liked as much as my oaky tasting chardonnay--because a wine that is truly bio-dyanmic won't add oak chips unless the oak chips are also organic.  But anyway, I left the place feeling quite happy indeed.  With my two new purchases, I figured I'd have a great weekend...which I did.  And guess what the wonderful after effect was of all this organic wine?  None-- yes, for the first time in years, I woke up hangover free, stomach ache free.  Is it in my head, or do organically grown wines really your body different?  I'm not 100% sure, but I'm looking forward to  some more research!
