Hello! My name is Tony and I am interested in purchasing organic restricted, no added sulfite wines from you. My favorites are Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Chianti, and Cabernet Sauvignon in that order. My fiancée loves lighter and sweeter wines like White Zinfandel. I prefer wines made in France and Italy.

Your selection online of no added sulfites seems limited. Please advise?

Thank you

Hi Tony,

What you see is what you get! Organic No added Sulfites wines are hard to come by. They are rarely good and affordable and few vintners are crazy enough to take the financial risk to put them on the market. Whereas it is relatively easy and reasonable to restrict to low levels of SO2, to do without any is a dangerous proposition with little benefit since the vast majority of people are very happy with low SO2 wines. Sometimes the "pure" thing is not viable nor the most desirable. This is why you see almost exclusively domestic NSA and few imports!

Hope that answers your query
