"It's difficult to know how the wine you drink was really made. Sustainable grapes can be sprayed with toxic pesticides. 


While some wineries with organic vineyards make organically grown wines, they may also make other wines from conventionally grown grapes. How can you vote with your dollars if you don't really know what you're buying? 


Fortunately, Organically Napa has done the research—listing only the wines from certified organic vines—and can help you find wine made with your values in mind."
