Tasting notes: Pacific Redwood doesn't stop halfway when it comes to bringing you organic wine. It's not just grown organically, but processed organically. Medium-bodied, packed with flavors of blackberry and plum- all from organically-grown grapes processed with no added sulfites or other synthetic preservatives. Sustainability is a way of life for this family winery, and they invite you to join them. Pacific Redwood Organic Red is acceptable for vegans.
The Domain: Pacific Redwood is a third-generation family-owned and operated winery located at the pristine headwaters of the Russian River in Redwood Valley, Mendocino County, California. At Pacific Redwood, they combine the best of modern and traditional winemaking methods to showcase distinctive varietal flavors. Through minimal manipulation in the cellar, the wine is allowed to express the authentic character of our soils and climate. Pacific Redwood has been a vanguard in crafting wine without added sulfites for over three decades, a synthetic preservative added to most other wines (even wines made with organically grown grapes!) that can cause adverse allergic reactions in some people. Their organic and Biodynamic farming methods encourage care for the soil, groundwater, and wildlife, promoting rich biodiversity in the vineyard. Ninety percent of the land is held as an unspoiled natural habitat with a diverse mix of native plants and animals. As stewards of the land, the emphasis is to produce organic and Biodynamic wine of the highest quality while caring for the planet and palate alike.
