In case I haven't mentioned it enough, my family (minus T) not only likes to eat, but we also like to drink. As I've become more interested in, and concerned about, farming practices, I have become more interested in the environmental effects of growing everything. This includes grapes. Eating Well (a favorite source for recipes) just came up with a list of 6 biodynamic wines to try. I'm all for it and excitedly turn to the list, only to discover that there is only one bottle below $15 (and $14 at that) and most of them are in the high $20s. Now, I know you have to pay for quality, but at prices like that I simply can't afford to drink these wines everyday. Once again, I am faced with questions on how to eat and drink well, while being sustainable. Sadly, I'm not any closer to the answer when it comes to wine.
