Definition of organic wine

Organic wine is appreciated for its taste as much as are conventional types of wine and may be considered more ‘genuine’.

Organic wine is wine made from grapes grown in accordance with principles of organic farming, which typically excludes the use of artificial chemical fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides. Organic wine, in contract to conventional wine, is expected to come from small-scale production facilities linked to specific knowledge systems.

In addition, organic wines are considered to be purer wines with no additives or harmful residues compared to conventional wines.

The legal definition of organic wine varies from country to country. The primary difference in the way that organic wine is defined relates to the use (or non use) of preservative during the wine-making process.

In United States if wine is labeled ‘100 percent organic’, it must be from 100 percent organic fruit and must be made with the help of only organic processing aids. No added sulfites are allowed.

If a wine is labeled ‘organic’, then it must contain 95 percent organically grown fruit and may not contain added sulfites (the wine may contain up to 10 ppm sulfites that are a product of fermentation).
