Clean eating is the healthy trend du jour, but what does it mean? Put simply, it’s about eating nutrient-packed foods in the purest form possible. Now vino lovers can drink clean too.

Duck Pond Cellars (formerly Great Oregon Wine Co.) provides America’s first natural production wines certified by the Clean Label Project. Located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and Dundee Hills, Duck Pond grows organic grapes without glyphosate or neonicotinoid pesticides, which can harm pollinators, and harvests them by hand. And here’s a plus: The vegan wines contain no added sugar and are low in sulfites—under 100 parts per million compared with as much as 350 ppm in conventional wine.

At about $15, the crispy, dry rosé is an affordable addition to August picnics and backyard parties. The collection also includes chardonnay, pinot gris and pinot noir for red wine drinkers. Cheers to living clean!
