The wine is green at Kimpton
As an addition to their lauded EarthCare program, Kimpton restaurants have been refining their wine lists to provide us with more sustainable sustenance. By January 2010, participating restaurants in 21 cities will be stocking a minimum of 30 percent eco-friendly, biodynamic, and organic wines.
So, is green wine any different from regular wine?
"Yes, I find that they're better wines. I think that extra level of care really translates into the product," says appropriately named Kimpton master sommelier Emily Wines.
Wines told Tonic.com all about how wine can be made greener -- she especially recommends Oregon house Sokol Blosser, where they keep an eye on the local salmon, and rather than air conditioning their cellars, they built a hill over them to keep the wine cool.
