About

David Christopher Redic:  Grape Grower (Organic Riesling), Winemaker (Small Batch), Writer (Freelance), Engineer (EE), Certified Hospitality/Beverage Specialist (The Society of Wine Educators)

Philosophy: The “Common Good” exists.

Organic, Biodynamic, and Sustainable Winegrowers around the world are working to rid the wine industry of the soil destroying, carcinogenic agrochemicals put into use after World War II.

If you drink wine, the time has come to go green.

Definitions and etc:

Agrochemicals: Synthetic pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, fertilizers, etc.

Organic: No agrochemicals are used in the vineyard.  Organic certification varies somewhat from country to country.

Biodynamic: No agrochemicals are used in the vineyard.  The vineyard is seen as the sum of its parts where all elements and organisms are meticulously balanced and tended by the grower.

Sustainable: A vague term that can mean any degree of concern for the environment. Since the definitions of “concern” and “environment” are apparently subjective, one vineyard can be “more sustainable” than another.  Most vineyards self-labeled “sustainable” will list their definitions and practices at their websites.
