Wine with no sulfites added
Photographer Becky Luigart-Stayner

What it says: no sulfites added

What it means: Sulfites appear naturally in many fermented foods and are added as preservatives to kill bacteria. Winemakers often add sulfites to prevent oxidation that would spoil wines. 100% organic wine does not have added sulfites, though they may have occurred naturally.

Our Recommendation: Frey Biodynamic Syrah ($17)

Tastes like: plums, boysenberries

Serve with: beef, hearty pastas, and chocolate
