Out of the Frey

Minus the sulphites, (and hangover), sipping wine can be so much more enjoyable an experience...for this reason alone you should try fine wine from organic vines. And of course you should drink them because the farming methods are so much better for the environment. My usual choice for consistently great tasting organic Chardonnay is from Bonterra, ($14).
But I thought I'd switch it up a bit so I recently tried Frey Vineyards, which also hails from Mendocino Valley, in northern California. This 25-year old, family-owned, organic vineyard's site is filled with info about their approach to growing their grapes, especially their Biodynamic grape production. (Chardonnay, also a mere $14).
Whatever the vintner, when accompanied by some fine organic cheese and crackers, you'll sip and sup a summer afternoon snack that packs a pleasant punch without all the residue. Cheers!
