the arbor day foundation plants a sapling in fire ravaged areas of northern california for every shipment we send. trees we plant can absorb as much as a ton of carbon over their first forty years in the ground.

yes. good juice comes from certified organic and biodynamic vineyards, and healthy, carefully farmed fruit needs little intervention in the winery.
the conversation about natural wine often jumps straight to sulfites. when grapes are farmed well, a little goes a long way.

not in moderation. sulfites (SO2) are a natural by-product of primary fermentation, so all wine contains some; most wine contains added SO2 as well, though amounts can vary widely. added SO2 suppresses microbial activity (volatile acidity, brettanomyces) and minimizes the effects of oxidation.
good juice has enough SO2 to keep it clean, but never so much you can smell it. there's often an excess of it and other food-grade winery additives in mass-produced wine to compensate for poor fruit quality, along with measurable quantities of residual vineyard chemicals.
think sulfites in wine might be giving you a headache? you could suffer from a rare sulfite allergy, but if you feel fine drinking processed fruit juice or dried fruit, sulfites probably aren't the issue. the problem might be the way that wine was farmed. grapes don't wash before fermentation, and pesticide residue can give you nasty headaches.
whatever feels right--yes, even red with fish if you're in the mood (like light mediterranean juice with cioppino, yum). I recommend opening the bottle you want to drink before cooking, and making small adjustments to your dish to match and please.
there's no right or wrong, follow your gut given the situation. I generally like both my white and red wines around "cellar temperature" (cool, around 60 degrees or so--twenty minutes in the fridge will usually do it) when I bring them to the table and let them come to room temperature as I enjoy them.
I find decanting often gives both whites and reds an opportunity to develop and open more fully, especially if you're going to consume them within an hour or two of opening them.
it's hard to go wrong with glassware. there's something to be said for delicate stems with fine lips, but sometimes a sturdy bistro glass is exactly what the moment requires.
