RiverMarket Wine and Spirits offers all of the wines on the RiverMarket Bar and Kitchen Wine List at retail pricing. The focus of the selection is on winegrowers and winemakers from all around the world who are practicing natural, organic, sustainable farming and winemaking with a special emphasis on those who are certified biodynamic. The list of producers is an impressive one, from the most famous and sought-after - Domaine De La Romanee Conti, Domaine Leflaive, Coche-Dury, Joseph Drouhin, Denis Bachelet, Jacques-Frederic Mugnier, Jacques Selosse, Cedric Boucharrd, Marie Courtin, Zind-Humbrecht, Huet, Chidaine, Lafarge, Vieux Telegraphe, Mascarello, Conterno, Quinterelli, Ostertag, Pingus, Seresin, Freemark Abbey, Stonestreet, Bodegas Catena Zapata; to amazing small producers with rabid cult followings - Occhipinti, COS, Abbatucci, Goisot, Lapierre, Janvier, Foradori, Montirius, Chandon De Briailles, Littorai, L'Ecu, Gramenon, Miani; to those who are great but still just a little under the radar - Joncier, Pignier, Koyle, Fouassier, Caiarossa, Radio-Coteau, Hawk and Horse, Reyneke, Millton and Cowhorn. Some are certified something - organic, sustainable, natural, green - and are environmentally and ecologically aware of the impact we have on the earth - land, air, water, sun and people - and are working hard to lessen the damage - Ponzi, Cambria, Stonestreet, Calera, Edmunds St. John, Tikal; and then still a few who make wine the old fashion way, traditions passed down from generation to generation - R. Lopez De Heredia, Chateau Musar, Roagna, Monthelie-Douhairet-Porcheret, Domaine Tempier. All of these wines are made differently by unique winemakers in special climates facing distinct and difficult challenges. But the one thing that they have in common is the determination to make wine as naturally as is possible - to reduce the use of chemicals in the vineyard and winery; to make the earth healthier after every harvest; to hand it off to the next generation in better shape than they got it - so that the magic in the bottle can continue for generations to come - this the very essence and definition of sustainability.
