Green Your Drinks: Wine
Tip #2: Follow the "Green Line"
Looking for a winery that embraces sustainable farming practices? Remove the guesswork by consulting the results of Sierra's ecofriendly wine taste test. Next, consider location. People living in the western half of the United States should opt for wines from California, Oregon, or Washington. If you live on the East Coast, you're better off buying wine from France or from local vineyards. According to the American Association of Wine Economists, transporting vino by sea is less carbon-intensive than driving it long distances. So depending on where you live, even varietals from Australia and Chile can be sipped without guilt.
