At a time when environmental and health issues are in the news everyday, it is becoming obvious that eating and drinking healthier will benefit us as well as the planet.

We hear terms such as “natural”, “organic”, and “biodynamic” more and more in reference to wine, winegrowing and winemaking. But what do these words mean? Are these methods better than conventional viti/viniculture, and how? What is their impact on the environment and on our health? How do the resulting wines taste, and what is their future?

We will explore these questions and present the latest research on the subject during this new Wine Botany class at the New York Botanical Garden while tasting some of those natural wines. Join us as we dive into the fascinating ways these wines are made and discuss why these production methods are considered to be environmental and health solutions.
