With the Soil Association spearheading Organic September, there couldn’t be a better time for eco-conscious wine lovers to support Europe’s biggest celebration of all things organic.
Better for the environment and a natural choice, green farming initiatives are becoming increasingly popular among winemakers and consumers.
Green party planners can cater to this flourishing wine culture with Sainsbury’s SO Organic range of wines (two whites, two reds). Two easy-drinking Italians - the fresh and fruity Sainsbury’s SO Organic Soave (£4.99, Sainsbury’s), and the tangy and dry Sainsbury’s SO Organic Pinot Grigio (£6.99, Sainsbury’s) - are both great value.
Heading to South America, red wine lovers can quench their thirst for a masculine malbec with The Co-operative Fairtrade Organic Gran Reserva Malbec 2011, Argentina (£7.99, The Co-operative). Rich, potent and full-bodied, it’s brimming with black fruit flavours, a shot of cherry and a smattering of spice and tobacco with firm tannins on the powerful finish.
