These ingredients aren’t much of a problem, but there is a little extra something you’ll never see on the label: glyphosate.

Study Results

Microbe Inotech Labs in St. Louis, Missouri examined Californian wines originating from Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties (3).

Syrah, coming from a biodynamic and organic orchard that was apparently never sprayed with pesticides, was found to contain .659 ppb while another organic wine contained .913pb. In comparison, a 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon contained 18.74 ppb of glyphosate.
