Organic wine

Put down the pesticides and pick up a bottle of Organic Wine Read More Show Less

Put simply, Organic winemaking, like all Organic farming, eliminates synthetic chemical additions. Where chemical fertilisers might have been used, there could be complimentary planting between the vines or manure compost laid down, and predators can be introduced to eliminate pests. That's before we even discuss the use of Sulphur and the blurred lines between Organic and Natural... 

In order to be certified as ‘organic’, you have to comply with the strict rules and guidelines that are set by your country’s regulating body eg. Soil Association (UK), NOP (USA) or Agriculture Biologique (France). One of the most important regulations that you have to follow is that it is not permitted to spray herbicides or pesticides or any chemical products on the vines; only natural products can be used to help the grapes grow. 

There are many other strict rules that must be followed in order for a wine to be labelled organic, and the organic certification process is often lengthy and costly. This leads us to think that organic wine is expensive, but this is not universally true. 

In areas where climates vary drastically from vintage to vintage, winemakers have to invest in expensive non-synthetic pest-control techniques, which in turn affects the cost of the final product. However, in areas that have a reliable climate that is consistent from year to year, organic wine practices don’t have to cost much and that’s why organic wine can also be wallet-friendly.
