Perlage Riva Moretta 2007
Shinn Estates "Coalescene" 2008
A favorite of The Daily Green staff, this wine has just a hint of peach in color and taste. This wine is a blend of mostly sauvignon blanc, with a mix of semillon, gewurztaminer, riesling, and chardonnay grapes; it retails for about $15. Try it with seafood, appetizers or on its own to appreciate the wine's complexity.

Kunde Magnolia Lane Sauvignon Blanc 2008
If you're not usually a fan of the common big acidic tastes of sauvignon blancs, this wine might be one to win you over to the grape. This refreshing milder sauvignon blanc is perfect with seafood and retails for $17. The Kunde Estate has many unique programs at their gorgeous vineyard (shown here) that support sustainability and involve the community in nature.
Nikolaihof Gruner Veltliner "Hefeabzug" 2007
Unlike many wines that don't announce their organic and biodynamic stature, this wine wears its "greeness" on it's sleeve, literally, the bottle has a small paper sleeve attached to the neck of the bottle that reads: "Wine from a Biodynamic Estate." This Austrian wine pairs well with the trickiest-to-match spring vegetables: asparagus and artichokes and retails for about $25.
Clif "The Climber" White Wine 2007
The people who brought you Clif and Luna Bars now bring you sustainable wines. This white varietal, mostly made from sauvignon blanc grapes, retails for about $14.
