Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and the most tried-and-true plans include dinner with a good bottle of wine. Who can resist a toast to love? Even before this latest wave of awareness for the virtues of eating and drinking organic food and beverages, European wine makers were producing wine made with organic grapes and didn’t even consider adding toxins.

You can ask the experts at your local shop about brands that are organically produced but that might not be labeled as such. Or go truly green by enjoying wine that is organic and also locally produced. Ah-hem—the city is within skipping distance from wine country. Arlequin Wine Merchant and Swirl on Castro are among local shops that carry organic varieties.
