Snoqualmie Vineyards Organic and earth-friendly wines - Earth Day Wine

Earth Day is less than a week away and I always reflect about what I do during the year to help our environment. I always make a conscious effort to purchase items made from recycled products and will spend a little more money on things that are Eco-friendly. So an earth friendly wine is right up my alley!
Snoqualmie Vineyards is a sustainable wine made out of the largest certified organic vineyard in Washington State. They recently released a ton of new wines just in time for Earth Day and they have new Sustainable Packaging. There is a large variety which would pair perfectly with events during the Spring and Summer.
