What’s in your glass?
The dirty secrets of wine, and why you need to know about natural wine…
You’re probably very careful about the food that you and your family eat. But what about wine? Does it receive the same level of scrutiny? Probably not. But wine is an agricultural product, subject to the same levels of processing and manipulation as processed food. Grapes are the second or third most sprayed crop, right behind citrus. PESTICIDES! ROUNDUP! There are nearly 100 allowable additives in wine, as well as genetically modified yeast, but no ingredient labels. ADDITIVES? GMOs?
If you enjoy wine and care about what you put in your body, you need to know what to look for — and what to avoid. Rock Juice is here to give you the real story, and to share a selection of amazing, highly drinkable natural wines (as in, you can drink a generous amount and not feel like something the dog dragged in the next day). Each month, ROCK JUICE curates a mix of the highest quality natural wines from small, organic family farms that meet our strict standards of health. Unlike today’s highly processed wines, this is real wine. Nothing added, nothing removed.
