Organic Californian Wines

California has a fantastic climate for producing ripe, balanced grapes. There is plenty of warmth and sunlight, but it's the cooling breeze from the Pacific Ocean that ensures the grapes stay fresh. With more than 1,200 wineries around the state, and with a land mass roughly ¾ that of France, it's no surprise that sunny California is one of the most popular New World wine producing regions. ...


Winemaking was only brought to California in the 18th century by Spanish missionaries, but wine-making took a hit in the Prohibition Era. By the mid 1900s, California was famous for its port-style wines. After The Judgment of Paris (when California wine was crowned superior in a blind-tasting event), California has become the #1 wine-producing region in the Western Hemisphere.

In California, there are over 60 different grape varietals planted and grown. The climate of California makes it ideal for Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Petit Sirah, and Pinot Noir--all of which are now synonymous with California wine. Other grapes grown here include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, and Grenache.

Winemakers have come from all around the world to live in the United States (and California, specifically), bringing with them their Old World secrets. The result is top-quality wines worthy of your table and your cellar!
