I’m not sure about you, but sometimes life just calls for a chilled glass of wine or champagne. Whether it’s to celebrate a special occasion or to wind down after a long week, wine is something that is a part of most people’s lives however, after learning about all of the harmful ingredients in conventional wine, it became something I did less and less of. Even though it is not something I use often, I still like to make sure that whatever wine I do drink is as clean as it can be!
Did you know that most wine you find in a store is currently loaded with tons of added sugar, high sulfates, thickeners, and even synthetic dyes? Hello, hangovers! Because of this, I was on the hunt for wine that is a better alternative without having to completely give up wine. Luckily, I found Dry Farm Wines!
There is so much to love about this company and its practices, let’s discuss!
- Organically grown on family farms.
- Biodynamic & Vegan.
- Lower alcohol, less than 12.5%.
- Keto & Paleo friendly!
- Lower Sulfites, around 39ppm.
- Fermented with wild, native grape yeasts.
- Independently lab tested for purity.
- Sugar & additive FREE.
- No thickeners, dyes, or industrial additives.
- Supports small Organic farmers.
- Happiness guaranteed!
First, let’s talk sugar. Most wine companies add sugar to their wine – like a lot of sugar. Dry Farm Wines have less than 1 gram of sugar per liter (and a standard bottle of wine is .75L), where most conventional wine has about 2 grams of sugar per glass. So if you typically get that not-so-great feeling after drinking wine, the sugar could be a major culprit.
The next major dealbreaker for me are sulfites. Sulfites are often linked to those head-throbbing migraines and can also cause allergic reactions. So for those that are allergic to alcohol, because they don’t have the enzyme to properly break down alcohol, finding an option that has a very low quantity of sulfites might help out. To give you an idea of what you will find in a store-bought wine, brands are allowed to have up to 350 parts per million of sulfites in their wine. Dry Farm Wines have around 39ppm which as you can see is significantly reduced.
Additionally, these wines are a better choice for your gut health! Because these wines are fermented from the natural yeast of the grapes, instead of lab-made yeast yuck, they have a lower alcohol percentage of 7% which makes it easier on your gut. Another win!
Of course, I made sure these are Organically grown wines and as a bonus, they are biodiverse which means from seed to bottle everything is done naturally and thoughtfully. Each wine is made from vineyards that practice regenerative dry farming which means they care for the soil, land, ecosystem, and reduce their water supply. The wine is handmade utilizing ancient practices from small family vineyards and they also lab test each wine to ensure they are aligned with the strict criteria the Dry Farm Wine company holds. Because of all this, you can taste what pure wine is actually supposed to taste like!
If you weren’t already in love with this brand, for me what makes it even more fun is that they have a super convenient, subscription-based model which allows you to choose what type of wine you’d like: red, white, rose, sparkling, or a mix of red and white, to receive on a routine basis. This is how they can support so many family vineyards that uphold the pure wine standards. My favorites to get are the sparkling & rose options as it is so much fun to discover new wines and even champagnes from all over the World!
If you are looking for a wine alternative that is way better for you, better for the environment, and better for small family farmers then these wines are a must. You’d be surprised at how different pure wine tastes compared to your conventional! Even though we do not drink a ton, I love having these ready for events or those days where you just need a glass.
Also, if you sign up for the first time, you can get an additional bottle of wine for just .01! To sign up and claim your penny bottle, click here.
