100% Organic Wines that are good wine??

Midlife | Jan 27, 2007 10:47 AM

This is a tangent from the topic I began on Wine and Headaches @[]

My original question was about the causes of wine heaches and why people say they get headaches from wine at home in the US, but not when travelling in Europe. The responses, especially the one with the link the a group of articles on exactly that subject really put this into perfect perspective.

To whatever extent people really do get headaches specifically from sulfites in wine, a possible answer for them could be 100% organic wines (no sulfites added, and from what I've learned also almost no measurable sulfites present because natural levels dissipate when no more are added).

BUT..... have you tasted 100% organic wine? The few I've tried have been badly oxidized, with substantially degraded color and aromas that approach medicinal. They are NOT enjoyable in the context of the wines I've grown to love or even the ones I've learned to tolerate.

Anyone have experience with 100% organic wine? Can you name some that you would say taste good? Maybe not great, but at least good?
