So do you actually know what's in your wine? Well, do you?
If you drink wine regularly, listen up!
In March of 2016 Moms Across America released new results showing that 10 major California wines contained the chemical glyphosate. “Glyphosate, deemed a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization in 2015, was found in all three categories of wine. This includes conventional (chemically grown), organic and biodynamic wines.” (Source)
If you aren’t aware, glyphosate is a synthetic compound that is non-selective systemic herbicide. It is used to kill unwanted plants. It is the chemical found in the common weed killer, Roundup.
Besides glyphosate in wines, the FDA allows up to 250 additives such as:
Ummm… No thanks.
The average mass produced bottle of wine can contain up to 16 grams of sugar! That’s more than a glazed donut. Gross.
Think about this scenario. Your favorite wine is Kendall Jackson Chardonnay. You as a consumer are expecting each bottle to taste the same. However, the earth, climate, and other circumstances effecting the vineyard/harvest cannot be consistent. It’s impossible. Therefore the companies have to modify the wine every time (with who knows how many chemicals) so you the consumer continues to drink that wine.
I know so many women here consume and drink wine regularly. I feel it’s a disservice to not let you know that you have better options when it comes to consuming wine! It’s been a game changer for me and it may be a game changer for you!
This is the only wine I drink. It’s so yummy and I cherish and truly enjoy every sip.

This is the no hangover wine! Of course this is relative your tolerance to any alcohol, but many hangovers are caused by the preservatives and additives that are added to wine!
You can buy one or 100 bottles. There is also a wine club that is not committal. I source 6 bottles every month. I love the variety and have been buying for over 10 months. There has only been 1 bottle I have disliked and the company sent me a new one to replace it. Customer service is AMAZING!

Tell me did you know all of this shit was allowed in wine? Even the organic wine at the grocery store could still be toxic. Notice how they only use “organic grapes”… that doesn’t mean the rest of the ingredients are organic…
