Episode 40: Transforming Wine Culture & Conscious Drinking With Todd White

wellpower podcast Nov 07, 2022


Sugar and alcohol are prominent in the top 20 best-selling wines in the United States. 

In that case, is it possible to drink wine regularly while staying healthy? 

If you are concerned about what you are putting into your body and its implications on your wellness, longevity, or body shape, how can you solve this problem?

Joining Kristin on the podcast is Todd White. As the founder of Dry Farm Wines, a writer, speaker, and a leader in the organic/Natural Wine movement, Todd White has widely educated communities on conscious consumption. 

Todd is a self described biohacker who practices daily meditation, Wim Hof breathing, cold thermogenesis, a ketogenic diet, and daily 22 hour intermittent fasting. He is also a frequent speaker on topics including meditation, and the Dry Farm Wines unique company culture. Built on a foundation of honesty and peace, Dry Farm Wines has seen remarkable growth, making it one of the fastest growing private companies in the U.S., without any debt or investors.

Dry Farm Wines is endorsed by many leading U.S. performance influencers with pure Natural Wines that are lab tested  to ensure each bottle is sugar free (0-0.15g per glass), lower in sulfites, and lower in alcohol (under 12.5% alc/vol). The wines are friendly to low carb, Paleo, ketogenic, and low sugar diets. 

Dry Farm Wines is proud to be the largest Natural Wine merchant in the world, bringing awareness to Natural Wine consumption and supporting farmers who honor the soil.

In this episode, he expresses his concern with modern winemaking practices, namely using harmful additives to speed up production and boost profitability and the lack of transparency. He details differences in commercial, organic, and natural wines, elaborating on how they are made, the pros and cons of each. Todd then discusses important considerations to make when selecting healthy wine.

Therefore, pay close attention to learn some of the trade's most closely guarded secrets.
