Organic Wine Tasting @ Olivino, TONIGHT

It ain't easy being green, and when it comes to the world of organicwine-making, the road to understanding is so confusing it can drive a person to drink. Lucky for you (and us), Leigh from Organic Vintages will be here Friday evening to help you do just that -- and in the process he'll explain the specifics of organic farming, unravel the mystery of biodynamics, and set the record straight on the sulfite debate.

We'll be celebrating the global sustainability with wines from three very different parts of the world: Nuova Cappoletta, a crisp, mineral-y chardonnay from Piedmont, Italy; Stellar Organic's juicy-smooth cabernet from the Western Cape of South Africa; and a full-fruited syrah by Badger Mountain Vineyards of the Columbia Valley in Washington State.

Together we can help to make the world a better place, one bottle of wine at a time.

The tasting will be held from 6:30 to 8:30. Hope to see you there!
