Organic wine growing

Organic wine growing

One does’nt have to be catholic, to understand what the vatican bishop Gianfranco Girotti said on the Roman Catholic Church’s new list of seven deadly sins for the modern age, which include eco-abuse, obscene consumerisme and genetic manipulation:

„You offend God not only by stealing, blaspheming or conveting your neighbor’s wife, but also by ruining the environment.“

This is exactly what conventional wine growers do by using a lot of chemicals in their vineyards!
