Many of us care about the what we eat and how our food is sourced, but have you considered what is in your wine?

Wellesley resident, mom, chef and the friendly face at the Wellesley Farmers’ Market pick up spot for Farmers’ to You, Janine Malone wondered the same.

After doing some research, she learned and loved the idea of drinking clean-crafted wine that is organic or biodynamic, vegan and bottled consciously, with no chemicals or added sugar.  She now sells a variety of these wines, all from small family vineyards that hand picked their grapes.

Contact her for more information. These are the wines folks have tasted at two recent Sustainable Wellesley events – Taste the Future; and Conversation with The Candidates and Community Dinner.

Cheers
