No Synthetic Fertilizers, Herbicides or Pesticides
Organic grapes are cultivated in vineyards banning the use of artificial inputs, including synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides and pesticides. In organic vineyards, a bountiful growing year relies instead on maintaining strict standards for soil health-for example, upping biodiversity through crop rotation.
No Added Sulfites
In the fermenting and bottling phase of winemaking, organic wines cannot contain added sulfites. Sulfites–also known as sulfur dioxide, a naturally occurring preservative in most wines and an inherent by-product of alcoholic fermentation-can be manually added by the winemaker to up the sulfite level in their bottle of vino, thereby increasing its lifespan. If a winemaker opts to add sulfites but otherwise follows organic farming practices, the wines can’t be labeled “organic.” However, they can be classified as wine “made from organic grapes.”
