CCOF is an organic certifier organization founded in 1973 to produce wine and beer made with organic products and natural methods of soil usage. Organic wines are made with herbicide-free and fertilizer-free cultivated grapes. Any kind of synthetic contribution is banned, while renewable resources and soil restoration are emphasized. Overall, the principal concerns are human health and the environment.
There will also be a silent auction at the tasting. Up for bid are CCOF-certified organic products, wines and beers as well as organic flowers, a 75-minute organic facial massage or lunch for two at Chez Panisse Restaurant and Cafe in Berkeley. The auction will benefit the CCOF’s nonprofit programs.
