Clean Wine: My Favorites on Thrive Market

I recently posted about my Thrive Market autoship items, but sharing about my favorites and not mentioning their wine would be a miss. I LOVE their wine. I was getting the point where a glass of wine would give me a headache, sometimes lasting until the next day. Not with Thrive Market’s clean wines.

For a wine to be considered for thier program, it has to abide by a certain set of standards:

  • Biodynamic, organic, or verified sustainable farming practices
  • Developed with minimal intervention
  • Sourced from small and mid-size producers
  • Minimal to no irrigation whenever possible (this lowers the mold content!)
  • No added sugar
  • Low sulfites whenever possible
  • No flash pasteurization
  • No oak chips, or flavorings
  • No use of dimethyl dicarbonate (DMDC)

I started out by trying a “Bundle of the Month,” which is a half case of 6 wines- mine came with 3 reds, 2 whites and a rose. This gave me a good sampling to see what I liked. Now, they offer 4-wine starter packs too, which are great options for trying new ones before having to buy a half-case. These are my personal favorites of each type:

Red

Rich, fruity & flavorful, not acidic. Perfect before, with or after dinner.

White

This is my FAVORITE. Super delicious and versatile.

Rose

So light and delicate, this would be perfect by the pool.

Sparkling

Bubbly & fruity, but not too sweet.

P.S. If you love champagne, you must this stopper. It saves your wine so you don’t have to drink the whole bottle at once. Keeps it perfectly bubbly.

Thrive Market: My Autoship Items

I’ve been a Thrive Market customer for years… when you buy high-quality products & mostly organic, value is essential. It’s been awhile since I shared some of my favorite products to order from Thrive Market (see previous posts- Thrive Market: My Favorite Deals and Thrive Market: Favorite Toddler Snacks)… And as they have come out with more of their own branded items that are super budget-friendly, there is so much more to share.

Plus, now they have an Autoship feature that automatically applies an additional 10% discount (!!) on items, and you can edit dates at any time + set frequency for individual items. Just before my ship date, I add whatever else I need to the order or delay the things I don’t need to restock.

Today I’m sharing what you’ll find in my Thrive Market Autoship Cart. If you want to try it out, get 25% off your first order from Thrive Market using this link!

Vitamins

We are big fans of gummies over here! I’ve always struggled to take vitamins because they make me nauseous, but these are great. The Calm gummies have made a big difference in my daughter’s sleep too!

For post-workout, to have on hand during illness or just those days I need an energy boost. This electrolyte drink mix gives you the essential minerals without the extra sugar.

Thrive Market: Favorite Toddler Snacks

If you know me, you know I LOVE Thrive Market. I’ve been a member for a few years now and the savings are real.  I am passionate about buying all organic groceries for my family and I’ve shared lots of tips about how to do so on a budget; Thrive Market is one of the ways I do it.  See some of my favorite deals here.

I shared some of my favorite toddler snacks on Instagram a while ago and many of you were interested in more, so I thought I would share what I buy specifically at Thrive Market because it is cheaper than at the grocery store:
