Labor Day Weekend's Taste of Sonoma: Find the Great Wines from Organic Vines

This Labor Day weekend marks the annual Taste of Sonoma with hundreds of wineries exhibiting wines from Sonoma's varied wine regions. This is your chance to taste them all in one spot (without driving from one end of the county to the other).

Check out these brands that produce 100% organic or Biodynamically grown wines.

• Eco Terreno
Don't miss the Old Vine Cab.

• Medlock Ames
Many, many wines to choose from.

• Westwood
High end Pinot Noirs and Rhone varietal wines.

Other wineries with a number of organically or Biodynamically grown wines:

• Quivira Vineyards
Organically grown Rhone varietals and their Fig Tree Sauvignon Blanc.

• Ridge Vineyards
Look for the East Bench Zin (and others).

Other exhibitors have fine wine from organic vines (Alexander Valley Vineyards, Benziger, Carol Shelton, DeLoach Vineyards, Imagery, and a few more) but their organic or Biodynamically grown wines are among their highest priced offerings or smaller lot wines so those are typically not poured at big tastings. (But who knows - you might get lucky.)

It all takes place at the Green Music Center at Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park on Sept. 1.
