Welcome to Day 10 of This Organic Girl’s 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways! One lucky winner will be taking home a gift card for a 6-bottle case of Dry Farm Wines (worth $171)!
Today I am so excited to feature
my lifeline, my blood type, the highlight of my day, what I consider to be one of the best subscriptions on the planet: Dry Farm Wines.
Dry Farm Wines is the largest buyer and reseller of natural wines in the world. They source, taste and lab test organic, natural and biodynamic wines worldwide THEN deliver it to your door monthly (or every other month). It’s like a monthly nontoxic beauty box, sub wine!
For more information on the 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways, read my intro blog!
Why dry farmed, natural wine?
Natural wine, defined by Dry Farm Wines, is real wine made from healthy grapes and happy yeast. To be considered natural, wines are farmed organically and/or biodynamically, free of chemical sprays, additives and fermented with native yeast.
I thought Dry Farm was just the company’s name but actually, in addition to being natural, all their wines are sourced from winemakers who use “dry farming methods.” Dry farming relies on natural rainfall for growing grapes. This is easy for regions in Europe like Bordeax and Burgundy where rainfall is frequent. And actually in most European regions where irrigation is illegal.
Why back dry farming? Well, dry farming saves 16,000 gallons of water per acre annually, it produces a better tasting (less diluted) grape and it’s overall more sustainable for the land. The reason why dry farming isn’t used by all is because it produces lower crop yields and therefore it’s used by less than 1% of US vineyards.
In addition, EVERY BOTTLE of wine that Dry Farm Wines delivers is:
- Lab tested internally for sugar, alcohol content and sulfur levels
- Sugar-Free (<1g/L) (less hangovers)
- Less calories at 80-90 per glass VS 120-150 minimum for commercial
- Low Sulfites (only natural occurring at < 75 ppm. The US standard is 350 ppm)
- Low Alcohol (no more than 12% to retain the finer notes and make it more enjoyable)
- Free of additives and preservatives
- Dry farmed, grown without the use of irrigation
- Grapes are natural, organic or biodynamically grown
- Grapes are hand harvested
- Old growth vines, generally 35-100 years old
- Fermented with wild native yeast
- Made in small productions
- Paleo and Keto friendly
Yeah. You read that right!
There are so many bennies here but I have to start out with the the one that knocked my socks off: taste.
The first delivery I got, of 3 reds, a rose and a couple sparkling wines, I could hardly contain myself. Each one was better than the next: light, beautiful in flavor, easy to drink, smooth, delicious and elegant. Real crowd-pleasers. It tasted like I was drinking a $50 bottle, easily. One time I ordered a $38 glass of wine in Vegas—and I can say with 100% certainty, all of Dry Farm Wines tasted better than that one glass!
