This B Corporation-certified winery signals high standards, even at $10 a bottle

Over the past decade, it has become increasingly difficult to find well-crafted wines around $10 a bottle. Since some of the easiest ways to keep prices down are to increase crop yields with chemical sprays or exploit seasonal farm workers, it seemed almost impossible to find decent $10 bottles made by a company. that can credibly claim to be environmentally and socially responsible.

Fortunately, there is a great resource for those looking to align their wine consumption with their values, the “B Corp” movement. This initiative is led by the B Labs association, which is inspired by a famous quote from Stephen Hawking: “There is no planet B”.

B Labs is based on the idea that the company could lead the way to a better future by moving to a new model that takes into account the needs of other stakeholders in addition to its sole shareholders, such as employees, communities neighbors or customers. To date, B Labs has certified over 50 wine companies as “B Corporations” to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. Among these, the most important is Concha y Toro, Chile’s leading wine producer.

For decades, family-owned Concha y Toro has been known for reliably delivering well-made wines that taste great at all price points. Their “Casillero del Diablo” line is hard to beat around the $10 mark, like with this delicious merlot. Like many Chilean reds, it has a flavor profile that is not as dry as most Italian or French wines, nor as jammy as many American or Argentine wines. A beautifully balanced dry red that is soft and velvety on the palate, this Merlot is loaded with flavors of dark cherries and dark chocolate. And now that Concha y Toro has earned its stripes as a B Corporation, you can also feel better about how you spend your wine.
