Organic Wine Tasting

What a great day to be part of the Revolutions Greens crew. Our new friend John Ireland of Ireland Wine and Spirits brought over some organic wines for a tasting today. One of them really stood out not just because of its great taste, but all the eco-friendly initiatives implemented at the vineyard. The wine was a 2006 Pinot Noir from Inman Family. Kathleen Inman who manages the viticultrual practices at the Inman Family's Olivet Grange Vineyard truly cares for the environment. Instead of using synthetic pesticides and fertilizer she has committed to maintaining and enriching the soil through the use of composts, worm casting and other natural materials. What's even cooler is that the compost used on the vineyard land is from table scraps discarded by high-end San Francisco restaurants and hotels. Great taste and eco-friendly this is the kind of wine we love drinking. Cheers!!
