So you know about the “Dirty Dozen” and the “Clean Fifteen,” right? If not, let me know and I will do a separate post on that (very important topic!).

A key finding from the 2016 Dirty Dozen report was that a single grape sample contained 15 pesticides!
SO, what about wine (which IS made from grapes most typically ;-)). I am guessing most people don’t even think about this when it comes to buying wine. What do you think?
