About Dry Farm Wines

In my quest to find more natural and organic wines, I came across Dry Farm Wines. They initially caught my eye because they are essentially sugar-free, but I quickly learned they have a lot more going for them as well.

First, I’ll explain what dry-farmed means (because I didn’t know initially). Dry-farmed means the grapes were grown without irrigation, which allows the vines to find their own natural water source instead of forced watering in the attempt to increase fruit yield.

Fun fact: Dry Farm Wines estimates their natural growers save 1.4 BILLION gallons of water annually by not irrigating!

While I discovered Dry Farm Wines when looking for organic options, it’s important to point out the difference in certified organic vs. organic. USDA certified are only allowed to have 10 ppm (parts per million) of sulfites, and wine “made from organic grapes” are allowed to add sulfites. Conventional wines can have up to 300 ppm and 70+ different additives.

Dry Farm sources wines from other countries, so the certification label doesn’t apply here, but I think they are even better than USDA certified. One reason I previously looked for certified organic wines is because of no-added-sulfite rule, however all wines sourced from Dry Farm are low-sulfites (their average is 39 ppm, with many being much less).

Dry Farm only sources from growers who focus on regenerative and sustainable practices from around the world. They use organic grapes, practice biodynamic farming and make their wines without any additives. They have a 3-rd party lab test certification to ensure this, and to show the levels of natural sulfites and residual sugar.

Dry Farm Wines Standards

Why would you choose to buy Dry Farm Wines over conventional? First of all, no additives! Did you know that there are over 70+ additives (including thickeners and dyes) that are are approved by the FDA to be added to wines?

Here are some more benefits of choosing Dry Farm.

  • Sugar-free. When wine is allowed to fully-ferment, the yeast eats all of the sugar. There is guaranteed to be no more than 1gram of residual sugar per liter of wine (or <0.15 g per glass).
  • Low-alcohol. This means <12.5%. They have some bottles that are as low as 7% alcohol, but most of the ones I’ve received are 11.5-12.5%, which I think is the perfect amount.
  • No added sulfites (with low naturally-occurring sulfites). Grapes contain sulfites naturally but because they don’t add sulfites (which are typically added by conventional methods to stop the yeast from growing), they have very small amounts. They say their average is 39ppm – for comparison USDA organic are allowed to have 10ppm, and conventional can have up to 300ppm.
  • Lab-tested results. You can actually look up any of the wines you receive in their “wine library” to see the amount of detectable sulfites, sugar and alcohol content. They also include other details of the wine as well as suggested pairings.
  • Vegan certified! Non-vegan additives can be in many commercial wines, like dairy, gelatin, and others. Dry Farm Wines is certified vegan!

There is also an extensive F.A.Q.’s section on their website that answers other common questions related to what is and what is not in their wines, and why.

How to Order

You can order a one-time gift for yourself or someone else to try it out, but I find the best way to stay informed on their deals is to join the club. You can skip or change any shipment once you’re a member and then you will also hear about their special boxes they often run around the holidays. Like orange wine for Halloween!

For your club membership, you can choose to receive 6 or 12 bottles of red, white, or a mix. You can also choose a Rosé membership or even a sparkling wine box. The frequency can be every month or every other month, though you can skip a shipment any time or choose a different date if you’d prefer a different interval.

So far, I haven’t received the same bottle twice, which makes this box a super fun surprise! Though if you do find a bottle you truly love, you can contact them to purchase more of it.


The club membership runs about $27 per bottle, and it will be slightly more if you are buying a one-time box. Though you can get a bonus bottle for $0.01 through this link in your first shipment! Shipping is always included.

Review Summary

While it’s one of the pricier wine clubs (depending on your perspective), this is one of my “treat-yourself” boxes I get for myself, and I sometimes take advantage of their holiday sales as well.

As far as the taste of these natural wines, I enjoyed 98% of them. I’ve never been a sweet-wine person, so if you like them more dry and don’t need or like the sweetness, these are a great option because of the zero residual sugar. If you are more of a moscato person, I probably wouldn’t recommend them – but as a dry red fan, these are great.

Every so often I’ll get a box of whites too and I have found some that I’ve really enjoyed. It just depends on your drinking preference!

Also, if you’re unhappy with any bottle for any reason they will send you a replacement or refund your money. Excellent customer service! I’ve received many boxes at this point and have taken advantage of this a few times – and one time was because I had an issue with the cork.

Each bottle has it’s own lab-results in their wine library resource that you can look up for sulfite and alcohol content, as well as suggested food pairings.

Purity standards upheld by Dry Farm Wines help me know that I’m not likely to get the “wine headache” afterwards and that I’m not drinking all sorts of crazy additives that can be found in store-bought wine. And knowing they are vegan certified is great peace-of-mind. I really do notice a difference in how I feel afterwards comparatively and do not feel sluggish or have any sort of hangover effects the next day. Seriously!

The subscriptions are super flexible, you can add, pause, change or cancel any time. And you can choose your charge date for any time during the month – rather than having it be on the same day. Very convenient!

But how do they taste in comparison to other popular napa wines? The fact that there is nothing in this article about the taste/quality makes me hesitant.

@Ashley, I just opened my first bottle last night. A Primitivo 2017 and I love it! Dry and light-bodied (and the prettiest red color I have ever seen) which is perfect for warmer weather. They will also refund or replace a bottle you might not like. I haven’t tried the other two yet but so far pleased by the one I have. It is pricy but as the author writes it’s also a “treat” for me.

Hey Ashley - thanks for your question! I've made sure to add some thoughts to the review about taste. As a fan of dry reds, I've been really pleased with the majority of the bottles. With no residual sugar, they are not for a person who enjoys really sweet wines but I would recommend them to anyone else. The quality is really my main concern and I do notice a difference in taste now that I've gotten used to the Dry Farm Wines and it's pretty much exclusively what I drink now. And they have a happiness guarantee if you don't like a bottle for whatever reason. I don't know how to compare to the Napa wines - I stopped buying California wines a long time ago unless they were organic. Let me know if you have any other questions!
