VIDEO: ProWein's 2016 Organic Lounge

One of the biggest wine shows in the world, ProWein featured an organic lounge this year. Enjoy this view of the organic wine industry from a region where organically grown is much more popular. 

Nearly nine percent of European wine production and consumption is from organic vines. In comparison, in the U.S. fewer than 3 percent of vines are organic.

The video includes a three minute interview with Olivier  Humbrecht, head of Domaine Zind-Humbrecht. Humbrecht was the first Frenchman to qualify as a Master of Wine. As vignerons, his family's history dates back to the 17th century. The estate has been organic and Biodynamic since 1997.
