Is wine raw? just curious.....I like a nice glass of organic wine after a long run or marathon, etc....??? :D

yep, wine is raw, however, please either make it yourself, or buy un sulfited wines, otherwise you are consuming massive toxins in the sulfites.
I personally don't do femented foods, or drinks, but that is just me, I'd rather eat the fruit, than drink the fermented, moldy dregs of it. UGH!!!

Good question about whether or not wine is raw. I was actually wondering that myself. Rawpriestess, how do you know if a wine is unsulfited? Does it say so on the label? Would organic wines be unsulfited?

Where can you purchace raw wine? Any websites?

Yes, it should say on the label if it has sulfites in it.
as far as I know all wine is raw, they do not need to heat it like beer to start the fermentation, because of all of the sugars, or at least the wine makers I know, say that wine is raw.

The organic wine I bought has no added sulfites. It is yummy. I just wasn't going to buy any more if it wasn't "raw." It is by "Badger Mountain" and is a Reisling if you like that kind of wine...I think I might just go buy some more right now...Cheers! :D

I tried to find organic wine in my area, haven't found any. Didn't know if you could order it off of the internet or not.

You CAN order it off the internet. I looked up the kind I like and there was a website for "Badger Mountain"....Good luck!

I was wanting to know what other opinions are on drinking raw wine? Seems like some raw foodist think it is ok, some think it is not healthy. I haven't made up my mine yet. What is good/bad about it? What does Alissa Cohen think about it?

I occasionally have organic wine, ah yum. Not often though, gallery openings, occasional dinner, etc. I had some fabulous wine in a bar in St. Pete, FL last week. Also what is SO GOOD is to pour it over a bowl of fruit.
in a bowl:
2 sliced bananas
ton 'o' blueberries
blend and pour over:
little piece of banana
juice of one orange
squeeze of lemon (with a little peel)
occasionally some brazil nuts
occasionally some wine
sprinkle with raw wheat germ.
this is so good, I practically lived on it this past week!

Grapes naturally have sulfites in them so even organic and homemade wines contain some sulfites.
here is a good FAQ on sulfites
I live in Wine Counrty amoung countless Vineyard and Wineries. We have several Organic's which are growing in popularity. The wine making process is truely raw. I have made wine, parents made wine when I was a child. We never added Sulfites. At the wineries you will find some add Sulfites to the Process, some do not. Like anything you can find out by asking the powers at the Source.
There so many Organic and Bio Dynamic wines are available on the Market. There is even a club for reg. delivery of Organic Wines.
To try and answer cranberrypineapplebanannas question, I recently watched Alissa's video and no she does not recommend wine, but says if you must have it do drink a raw wine. I also love wine but even raw wine takes away some of that great raw energy I love and leaves me feeling tired.

Well thanks for the replies. Does anyone know if the drinking of raw wine would interfere with the detox process?
Why are sulfites bad?
What do they do to the body?
I think the alcohal would not be good, not sure about sulfites but they sound bad for you. I love me a good glass of cab but my body does not love the affects of the alcohal.
