This Wednesday, April 22nd, marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. With factories closed, fewer cars on the road and people sheltering at home, skies are cleaner, grass is greener, and animal populations are booming and spreading back out.

At Planet Grape Wine Review we like to feature wines that come from grapes farmed naturally, sustainably, organically or biodynamically and are produced in non-interventionist methods, as the following do. Celebrate Earth Day with one of our picks or ask your local distributor or merchant to recommend one.
