Organic Wines

No Comments

Organic wines, which are very popular today, are those made without the use of artificial fungicides, pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides. Organic production tends to focus more on viticulture (grape growing) rather than the winemaking. It also includes little or no addition of sulphur compounds to kill germs and bacteria, as well as, not trimming the growth between rows of vines. Many producers actually utilize sheep to eat the growth between vines and their dropping act as fertilizer. Serious organic producers are usually certified by a government body of some sort and the certification is displayed on their packaging somewhere. Many organic producers also practice “biodynamic” methods as well.
