INTRO TO EPISODE:

Hello, Health Investor!

Welcome back to another episode of The Health Investment Podcast!

I’ve been waiting my whole life for this episode.

Okay, that’s a slight exaggeration…but I’ve been waiting a long time!

As you may know, I’m a wine lover…but I don’t just LOVE any wine—I love natural wine!

That’s why I reached out to Todd White, founder of Dry Farm Wines, several months ago. Todd is obviously a super busy guy, so I didn’t know if I’d ever hear back. When I finally did, I was elated!

Todd has been a serial entrepreneur and creator since he was age 17. Today, after 15 years in the wine business, his life is dedicated to educating and helping people make better choices about food, nutrition, and how they think about consuming alcohol. He is a leading authority on healthy organic/natural wines and the importance of micro-dosing alcohol for health, longevity, and vitality. Todd’s passion is unlocking the best way to enjoy alcohol so that wine drinkers can enjoy the benefits of moderate consumption while avoiding the negative outcomes.

Todd’s company, Dry Farm Wines, is the only lab-tested, all-natural, health-quantified wine merchant in the world that bio-hacks wine, quantifying organic and natural farming practices, as well as low intervention natural winemaking practices. Dry Farm Wines curates all-natural, pure, real wines from all over the world, working with small family farms that are committed to producing pure natural wines. Dry Farm Wines is also proud to be the largest natural wine merchant in the world, supporting small family organic farms all over the place.

At the end of the episode, Todd was so gracious to give me a promo link to share with you.

If you’re interested in trying Dry Farm Wines for yourself—and I know you will be after you hear everything Todd has to say!—you can visit dryfarmwines.com/thehealthinvestment and get a bottle of Wine with your first order for just 1 extra penny.

As I mentioned, it’s a subscription service, but the cool thing is that shipping is always free and you can pause your membership or cancel anytime. If there’s anything people talk about more than the quality of Dry Farm Wines’ products, it’s their customer service! They pride themselves on offering customers 100% happiness guaranteed—and they truly mean it!

I’m so excited to put this awesome company on your radar, and I know you’re going to learn a TON from Todd today. I’m calling this episode Natural Wine 101 because, as you’ll see, Todd essentially teaches a crash course on the topic. By the end of the episode, you’re gonna know everything you could possibly want to know about natural wine!

Enjoy…and don’t forget to snag your penny bottle of wine at dryfarmwines.com/thehealthinvestment!
