Here’s your guide to decide if going organic is worth the effort.

Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
Of the three main categories of booze — wine, beer and spirits —the former is by far the most difficult to produce organically, at least in the U.S. Thanks to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s certification process, organic wines cannot contain added sulfites, which are chemicals added to wines to inoculate against bad bacteria.

The Apparition

I ain’t ’fraid of no ghosts.


Rod Lott
Call me crazy, but 3,400 square feet seems like an awfully massive home for a strip-mall veterinarian's assistant and a Geek Squad-esque installer of home-theater systems. Then again, the place does have its drawbacks: doors open on their own, furniture moves mysteriously, mold appears, and then things start to die within its well-mortgaged walls — a Costco cactus here, the neighbors’ dog there.
