The Best Organic Wines You Can Get In Montreal

A wine connoisseur reveals his top picks.
The Best Organic Wines You Can Get In Montreal

Remember when I wrote a post titled "Signs You Might Be Allergic To Wine"? Well, the good news is - organic wines contain less sulfites (or, sometimes, don't contain any at all) than non-organic wines, therefore they are "safer" for you even if you're allergic to them. Your body will react less severely to it and, ultimately, you will feel wonderful after your night of drinking.

With the help of a Montreal tattoo artist as well as an amateur organic sommelier, Donovan McRae a.k.a. @dmtattooer, we were able to put together the ultimate list of organic wines available in Montreal for our readers. If you know nothing about organic wines, like myself, you will appreciate this compilation. Save this for your next trip to the SAQ. You're welcome.   

Luzon Organic (careful, they make non-organic as well)

Nerola Organic

- Great Spanish red wine

- Smooth medium bodied

- in my top 5 picks

- 20.75$

Tetramythos Kalavryta Organic

- Really nice Greek red

- a touch towards the sweeter side

- very fair and worth it at 16.85$

Chateau Lionel Faivre Organic

Bonterra Organic

- Get the Cabernet Sauvignon

- Easiest Bio wine to find in stores

- Nice easy breezy red wine, but hit and miss, sometimes great sometimes meh

- 19.95$

Château des Estanilles (L'Impertinent) Organic

- Often found at Krikland SAQ

Di Giovanna - Nerello Mascalese Organic

- Flavorful Italian red

- Only had it once but really enjoyed it

- 19.75$

Côte Roannaise - Vincent Willenbucher - Vieilles Vignes Organic

- Very interesting French red wine

- Had bought two bottles, one was spoiled and had to return it, the other was excellent!

- 21.30$ worth the price for an interesting taste

Moraza Tempranillo Organic

- Spanish red, similar to Nerola and Nerollo

- 18.75$

Heinrich Organics

- From Austria

- They make 3 kinds which I am sure are all good, I had the Blaufrankish 3 times. It's fun!

Above are on my top rated list, bellow are some I wouldn't suggest:

  • Cono sur Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Chateau la Lieu
  • Sangervasio
  • Albet i Noya
  • 35 South
  • Chemin de Roubia
  • Domaine des Huards
  • Bles-Crianza
  • Cotes-de-Rhone
  • Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre
  • Adobe Reserva
  • Domaine du Petit Roubie
  • Barbera D'Alba
  • Vento Di Mare

There are many more that were just OK

*Keep in mind Bio wines are more prone to going bad

A good trick is to use the SAQ websiteto see which stores have the wines you are looking for.
