No Grape is Created Equal…
Grapes vary in natural flavor and color, and mother nature determines the path of their growth cycle. To combat unpredictability in the final product (wine!), farmers and producers rely on toxic pesticides, chemical additives, and added sugar, which produce the same bottle of wine year after year.
All of those poisons also make it possible to increase the amount of wine yielded per year hide imperfections that may exist in those bottles (like bacteria).
Unfortunately, this processed wine is the furthest thing from natural, and you may even feel “poisoned” after drinking it.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is in your wine?
If you aren’t currently drinking clean-crafted wine, your wine could contain a variety of chemicals including pesticides, fungicides, fertilizers. Not to mention the added sugars that you simply DO NOT need. Learn more about dirty wine, by clicking here.
Why drink clean-crafted wine?
The problem is that most wine is loaded with undesirable ingredients; like added sugar, pesticides, gluten, and large amounts of sulfites — just to name a few. Grapes are on the Environmental Working Group’s “Dirty Dozen” list; meaning they are grown with excessive amounts of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and fungicides — the residue of which ends up in your glass of wine. This makes what should be a health-positive sip, a fattening, inflammation causing, bad habit. Learn more about why you should drink clean-crafted wine, by clicking here.
Why do you need to drink better wine?
Drinking mass produced wine that’s full of chemical additives and poor production practices will aid to the inflammation of your body, making you feel icky. Things like brain fog, feeling ill, and gastro-intestinal problems can all be the result of the sickening chemicals we’re ingesting. Cut the crap and get the good stuff so that you can confidently sip knowing that the ingredients going into your body aren’t going against your goals of living younger.
I thought wine in moderation was good for health?
There is a dark side to wine making that most consumers never see. I had always assumed the wine I was drinking was made from grapes and yeast, and was finished in stainless steel tanks or oak casks. Every wine tour I ever took followed that wine-making script as they led us through their charming wine caves; showing the picture perfect vineyards and curating a memorable wine-tasting experience. My romantic assumptions about growing grapes and wine making were a part of my enjoyment of wine — my five pound wine waist and random headaches were not! This is what I learned…
