Sterling Vineyards has readied a new range of organic wines for the US.

The California-based wine company said yesterday (9 September) that Sterling Vineyards Made With Organic Grapes 2007 Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay will be available nationwide from this month.

"Across the country, interest in organic foods and concern for the environment has become a priority for many people," said Sterling's winemaker, Malcom Seibly. "Sterling has long been interested in environmental sustainability for our industry, and our commitment to this has only increased. Producing an organically grown wine was the logical step for us when we found the grape quality we were looking for."

A Cabernet Sauvignon made from organic fruit will be launched next April, the company added.
