Organic wines are healthy wines.
"I’ve been hearing more and more customers want a better selection of Great Organic wines.

Behind my desk at Pop’s, I’ve set up a huge table entitled “Farmer’s Market Wines.”

Like getting fresh produce at your local farmer’s market, you can buy fresh wines made by responsible farmers producing as authentic as possible great wines.

First and foremost, these are Great wines, and Organic/Biodynamic second. There’s a lot of mediocre Organic wine out there, but not here at Pop’s!"
