"ANYONE who's not CERTIFIED can SRAY PESTICIDES whenever they DAMN well please."
"In France it's illegal to use the word "organic", if you're not certified. No "practicing organic", "almost organic", or any of that BS. "Think about it," Clemence Lelarge asked us. "If you were buying an apple and there were two farmers, one with an organic label and one without, would you trust the farmer who said his apple was grown organically but couldn't prove it? The farming is the hard part, not the certification.
Here are the excuses Industrial Agriculture has fed us in order to discredit certification: "Too much paperwork." "It's too expensive." "Its' not really that pure. Organic growers pollute too.""

Organic= Wines that are made with organic grapes.
Vegan= No animal products were used during the winemaking process.
Biodynamic= Organically grown grapes plus specific rules set by the Demeter organization that apply in the vineyard and the cellar.
“Natural”= No official definitions exist. We classify wines as ”natural” that are made with certified organic grapes, natural yeast and “nothing was added or taken away” during winemaking. Furthermore, we don’t accept wines with obvious fermentation flaws or faults; i.e. no funkiness, stink or any other off-flavors or tastes are acceptable in the natural wines we select for our stores.

"Fabulous wines, all curated, all great prices. Enjoyed talking to a Sonoma vintner (Winery 16600) who was pouring his latest wines...Wine Stop is now my must go to place whenever I'm downtown...Go, you will not be disappointed!" Yelp.com
"Owner Alvaro Cardenas is AMAZING. I needed to send a digital gift card to someone in LA and Alvaro was patient + kind enough to work with me to get the e-gift card out. The recipient is thrilled and it wouldn't have happened without the exceptional customer service provided by Mr. Cardenas. Highly recommend Wine Stop DTLA and will be using the shop for all my LA-based wine gifting needs." Google.com
"You know when you got something good, something great, but it's TOO good, TOO great, to the point where you almost don't want everyone to know about it? That's Wine Stop to me. And that's why I struggle over writing this review. I got introduced to Wine Stop almost 2 years ago and what seemed like an eclectic destination for entrepreneurs, artists, smugglers, dancers, models, photographers, recovering pickup artists, fashion designers, filmmakers, general bon vivants, and Taiwanese people has become a 2nd home whenever I'm in LA... which is sometimes every week."
