WCWG interviewed on Green City Market Localvore Challenge

The Windy City Wine Guy was interviewed by Carolyn Tang of the Green City Market Localvore Challenge.  This is part of a push for people to consume local food and drink and reduce the gas emissions caused by imported product.  My interview covers local wineries and organically and biodynamically produced wines.  Unfortunately there is only one Biodynamic certified local winery, Famous Fossil of Cedarville, IL.  But this does not mean that many others are not practicing organic or biodynamic methods!
