Special Guest: Katrina Frey of Frey Wines
Of all the food/beverage products that are on the market, beer and wine are the only ones that are exempt from proper ingredient labeling laws. As a result, you have no idea what you’re actually consuming. That’s why we are proud of our partnership with family-owned Frey Organic Wines in Mendocino County, California. Katrina Frey, Executive Director of Frey Wines joins Elizabeth to talk about food pairings, wine labeling and how you can join their “Wine of the Month” club.
About Frey Wines;
We are a third-generation family-owned and operated winery located at the pristine headwaters of the Russian River in Redwood Valley, Mendocino County, California. At Frey Vineyards we combine the best of modern and traditional winemaking methods to showcase distinctive varietal flavors. Through minimal manipulation in the cellar, we allow the wines to express the authentic character of our soils and climate. For over three decades we have been vanguards in crafting wine without added sulfites, a synthetic preservative added to most other wines (even wines made with organically grown grapes!) that can cause adverse allergic reactions in some people.
Our organic and Biodynamic farming methods encourage care for the soil, groundwater, and wildlife, promoting rich biodiversity in the vineyard. Ninety percent of our land is held as unspoiled natural habitat with a diverse mix of native plants and animals. As stewards of the land, we emphasize producing organic and Biodynamic wine of the highest quality while caring for planet and palate alike.
