Join us for a special festive episode of Green Bites: it’s Christmas and a lot of us are thinking about what wines to serve for our Christmas feasts. Does sustainability feature in your choice? What is a sustainable wine? Who is making it, where is it grown and what does it taste like? Fionnuala Harkin and Ellie taste three organic and biodynamic wines from vineyards in Europe that are going the extra mile to protect their environment and farm in harmony with the natural world.

We tasted:

La Sapata `Petiant Artizanal’ Rosé from Di Filippo Wines in Romania, €22.50

Balestri Valda Soave from Laura Rizzotto in Italy, €17.05

Le Grenache de Jean from Château La Baronne in Corbières, €19.90

The cheese:

Durrus Óg

Delice de Bourgogne, €4.70 for 160g from Sheridan’s cheesemongers.
