Prosecco’s success in the UK over the last five years is remarkable, and it’s easy to see why with examples like this. Incredibly fruity on the nose, it has pronounced notes of green apple and hints of peach, accompanied by floral notes of wisteria and acacia blossom.
On the palate it’s clean and uplifting with piquant crispness. Giol is the oldest Prosecco producer (1427) and switched to organic back in 1987. Grapes are grown on alluvial soils and picked during the coolest part of the day to help preserve their fresh aromatics. All wines are also suitable for vegans.
Setting the standard for green drinks
Vintage Roots is the award-winning and leading fully organic, ethical wine and drinks business, and has been since 1986. It’s a privately owned business run by Neil Palmer and Lance Pigott, who are passionate about placing the environment, sustainability and people’s welfare at the centre of their trading. They work hard to provide the very best organic, biodynamic, natural wines and other drinks (organic beers, ciders, liqueurs, spirits and alcohol free), offering attentive service to customers and the best possible prices.
Vintage Roots sets strict standards for its own business. Since 2005 the office has been powered by 100% renewable energy and in 2006 the company became the first in the UK to offset the carbon footprint of all its wine and beer imports. Last year saw the introduction of a ‘Vine to Lips’ logo, designed to communicate the company’s carbon commitment. Vintage Roots also supplies to many shops, restaurants, hotels and bars across the whole of the UK.
Organic roots – organic drinks are more popular than ever, but do they cost more, do they still give you a hangover – and are they made from carrots?
