Cheers! Here's to the 103 Best Organic and Biodynamic Wines to Try in 2020 - Organic Authority

Organic, biodynamic, and natural wines are having a renaissance, and we're excited to try as many as we can. 

When it comes to sustainability in wine, it all begins with the grapes. Grown without artificial fertilizers or pesticides, the high-quality grapes used in these wines promote biodiversity in the soil, so the terroir shines through. After all, wine is food, and we want to imbibe the purest, most delicious palate pleasers on the planet.

Whether you prefer refined elegance or wines that explode into a crescendo of tannins, this curated list of wines made with organic grapes brings you the must-try bottles of 2020.

(V) Vegan, (B) Biodynamic, (AW) Award-winning* 

*Note: Often, small producers do not enter contests due to high costs yet still produce excellent wines.
