Rack & Riddle To Offer Organic Bubbly - And More

Mark Garaventa of Rack & Riddle and associate at Taste of Mendocino
Rack & Riddle, a certified organic custom wine facility in Hopland (in Mendocino County), has been integral to many of Mendo wineries' success - and to their organic certification. The certified organic facility offers a 120,000 square foot state of the art facility with a capacity of 500,000 cases. Pretty big stuff.

Now the company, which also make its branded wines, but has not offered organically grown wines, will be offering four new wines that are made with organic grapes, starting with the 2011 releases.

Mark Garaventa, VP of Business Development for the company, said Rack & Riddle will be coming out with:

• An organic Syrah, priced under $20
• An organic Cabernet, priced in the mid $20s
• An organic Blanc de Blanc
• An organic Blanc de Noir

Garaventa said the first of the new organically grown wines will be released in August - which might call for a celebration?
