Going "Green" for St. Patrick's Day: Cuma Organic Wines

Cuma WineryWhat better way to celebrate and honor St. Patrick Day than with "green" wine?!

The two WOW: Wine of the Week selections are from Michel Torino Estates, Cuma Torrontes (this does actually have a green tint!) and Cuma Malbec.

Both wines are value priced under $12 per bottle and will be the perfect way to celebrate and wear your green with pride (and good taste!).

Cuma Organic Wines

Cuma is the range of organic wines produced by Michel Torino Estate. Viticulture and winemaking practices are strictly controlled and certified organic. Fertilizers used in the vineyards are sheep manure, ants are controlled with diatom earth, and weeds are cut with machetes: all natural elements. In the winery, sulphur levels are lower than conventional wines.
“Cuma” means pure and clear in Aymará, the language of a tribe who inhabited the region in the time of the Incas. For Michel Torino, the organic practices are a way to reconnect to the land and contribute ecological responsibility for future generations. The expression of the wines is accentuated; flavors and tastes are more intense, fresher and more natural, because the grape is allowed to express itself in the most genuine way.
