Why drink natural wines?

Wine, especially those made in the United States, has become loaded with added chemicals, sugars, and alcohol. This contributes to hangovers and other adverse health issues.

The US FDA has approved 76 additives that US wine-makers can use. Some of these are natural, some are toxic. 

In addition to using pesticides to support the farming of vineyard grapes, additives are used for manufacturing the wine's taste, extending its shelf life, and much more. Ultimately, these chemicals help winemakers' bottom line of maximizing recurring revenues and minimizing expenses. For example, additives/chemicals are used to help optimize yield from grapes, maximize mass appeal of the wine by adding sugar and alcohol to improve its taste, and stabilize the quality of the desired product. Listen to Sophia's podcast with Todd White to learn a lot more about conventional wines, natural wines, and biodynamic farming.

Todd White, a health-conscious wine lover, and passionate biohacker, is the founder of an incredible company called Dry Farm Wines. Dry Farm Wines is the largest Natural Wine merchant in the world, bringing awareness to Natural Wine consumption and supporting farmers who honor the soil. I also love that Dry Farm Wines does laboratory testing to ensure that each bottle it sells is sugar-free, lower in sulfites, and lower in alcohol. The wines are friendly to low carb, Paleo, ketogenic, and low sugar diets.
