Stellar Organics 2011 Pinotage

Posted by on Thursday, 14 March, 2013

Time to wind down with some organic wine! This time I chose Stellar Organics Pinotage 2011. This organic red wine has no added sulfites, is vegan, and is fairly traded. It hails from South Africa. That means there are no pesticides, herbicides, or other nasty chemicals used in growing these organic grapes for wine making. Yay!! And this wine is relatively cheap. In price, that is, not is it’s making.

My girlfriend and I both liked this wine. The Stellar Organics Pinotage 2011 had a little spiciness to it with an overal plum/fruity flavor. It would go perfect with a … Read the rest

Apple Celery Swiss Chard Ginger Juice

Posted by on Wednesday, 12 December, 2012

I had some random items sitting in my fridge that I needed to use up or they would go bad. That’s one of the benefits of juicing. Yes, I like having all these wonderful nutrients in a pint glass form, but it also comes in handy when you neglect your fruits and veggies for a while too.

4 Apples
3 Handfuls of Swiss Chard
4 Tall Celery stalks
1 inch of ginger

Chop up all these goodies and drop them in your juicer. The sweetness of the apples completely cover the taste of celery and swiss chard, and the gingerpacks … Read the rest

Pacific Redwood Organic Cabernet

Posted by on Wednesday, 5 December, 2012

Pacific Redwood Organic Cab hails from Redwood Valley, California. This organic red wine is great for vegans and for people looking for a sulfite free wine. Pacific Redwood Organic Cab is made with organically grown grapes and processed naturally, with NO added sulfites or other synthetic preservatives. Nice, right? You, betcha. Pacific Redwood also totes about natural farming in general, which I find very cool.

This organic cab is full-bodied with hints of cherries and chocolates. I also found that this organic cabernet had a bit of spice to it. The first sip went down easy, just like the rest … Read the rest
