One of my favorite East Bay wineries is having a sale! Now through midnight on Jan. 31, you can get penny a bottle shipping on all their wines, which include three that are organically grown:
Dashe's unique Les Enfants Terrible Zinfandel ($24)
A light style Zin
This is a great food-friendly wine, created for a local sommelier who wanted to highlight his cuisine.
See my earlier post here for more info. You have never tasted a Zin this light before - you owe it to yourself to try this Zin done in a Beaujolais style.
Get more details from the Men's Journal review of this wine; their writer called it a "Deliciously Wayward Zinfandel."
There are two versions of this: each one is sourced from organically certified vineyards in Mendocino County near Hopland.
• McFadden Vineyards, a major grower (and now vintner as well) in Potter Valley has grown organically for 40 years, where they raise grassfed beef and herbs in addition to its 160+ acres of vineyards.
• Heart Arrow Ranch, a biodynamic farm and vineyard, that grows vegetables, raises sheep, and more.
The 2011 Riesling ($20)
This is a very lovely, very dry Riesling grown on 30 year old vines.
You might try all three or get a mixed case sampler. I can firmly recommend these since I drink them often and have several cases in my cellar.
