The Wine World's New Wave of Organic

Empowering the Consumer to Make Wine Choices Vital for both Palate and Planet

About ConsciousWine

Have you noticed that an organic carrot almost always tastes better than a regular carrot?? So how can organically grown grapes be a bad thing?? Something went cuckoo when it comes to organic in the fine wine world, and ConsciousWine is here to set the record straight! To redefine what organic means in the fine wine world and to let you know whose doing 'dynamically organic' things out there in the vineyards... and following it up by making wine that rocks! One more thing... The idea for ConsciousWine was started after a wine-tasting with wines from all over the world that were tasting way too similiar to each other. PS: ADVERTISING dollars have no impact when it comes to who is supported by ConsciousWine and who is not. Head to MUSINGS for ConsciousWine's Blog...

The United States is joining the One Trillion Trees Initiative, President Donald Trump said on Jan. 21. Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Trump said the United States is joining the initiative. “We’re committed to conserving the majesty of God’s creation and the natural beauty of our world,” Trump said. America “will continue to show strong leadership in restoring, growing, and better managing our trees and our forests,” he added, drawing applause. The One Trillion Trees Initiative was announced during the forum. It encourages countries to plant trees as part of the effort to combat climate change. The goal is to plant 1 trillion trees by 2050. Ecologist Dr. Thomas Crowther told the forum last year that humans should plant 1.2 trillion trees to cancel out the past decade of CO2 emissions.
