The Easy New Way to Drink Better Wine

Created in partnership with Thrive Market.

You spend your Saturday morning talking to farmers about how they grew the squash and sweet potatoes you’re going to roast for dinner. You order certified organic quinoa and 100 percent grass-fed beef from Thrive Market to serve with those veggies.

And when you uncork a bottle of wine to serve with dinner….you have no idea how it was made or what the heck is in that bottle.

You’re not alone! Many people make food choices that prioritize personal and environmental health but have no idea how when it comes to enjoying a glass of Sancerre.

Thrive Market’s brand-new Clean Wines program is here to change that.

This is important because like processed, packaged foods, a lot of wine at your local shop is made in bulk to maximize profits, not quality. AKA, it’s the junk food of wine.

The Clean Wines program makes drinking better wine easy: Every bottle on the site has already been vetted and selected by a master sommelier. That means the grapes were grown using sustainable practices like organic and/or biodynamic farming and the wines are made with minimal intervention and no additives (like sugar or chemical preservatives).

Bonus: Clean wines are not just better for you, the farmers and winemakers, and the environment. They also taste better, since they reflect the pure character of the grape, the region, and the winemaker’s talents. (It’s like the difference between a tasteless industrial tomato and a funky backyard heirloom.)
