My husband and I have run into Todd several times selling his sugar-free wine at health conferences. I was initially VERY skeptical of his "too-good-to-be-true," claims especially because I believe excess sugar consumption is public health enemy #1.

  • Is SUGAR-FREE wine even possible?
  • Was he actually testing EACH bottle of wine?
  • What about his blood sugar response?
  • Was he testing that, too?

Turns out he was.Todd is fanatical about high-quality wine AND health. In fact, his desire to drink wine often and have life-long health is why he founded his company. He literally tests every wine to ensure it is truly SUGAR-free! He's also been in ketosis for over 3 years while drinking a bottle of wine each day.

  • The dangerous mycotoxin that our government doesn't test for (but Todd does)
  • Why your teeth get purple when you drink wine (and why it's bad!)
  • The REAL benefit of wine drinking (spoiler alert: it's not about resveratrol!)
  • How irrigation changes the health properties of wine
  • Why conventional wines are harming the environment
  • How his wines are SUGAR and carb free! (yes, your dream just came true)
  • Why the wine industry is a lot like the beef industry
  • The problem with most of the yeast used to make wine
