BRINGING AMAZING WINE FROM HEROIC, SUSTAINABLE SMALL GROWERS FROM AROUND THE WINE WORLD, £5.95 SHIPPING UK WIDE ON WINES
Organic wine is made from organically grown grapes and without the use of chemical herbicides and pesticides, but it can still have sulphides albeit at a much smaller level than conventional wine. The label ‘certified organic’ is regulated by the country where the wine is produced. In order to have organically grown grapes, a vineyard must implement an entirely different set of agricultural practices to maintain the health of their vines than what is typically done in a conventional winery.
There are no synthetic herbicides or pesticides or additives in organic wine. Instead of using pesticides, herbicides and other synthetic chemicals which are used in aid of artificially nourishing and protecting the grapes growing in a conventional vineyard, organic winemakers work with nature in order to cultivate the grapes growth through to harvest. Organic farmers will use animals like geese, ducks, sheep, or even donkeys to hinder weeds from growing in the vineyard. To control parasites that can inhibit the health of the vines, organic wine makers and growers will introduce enemy insects in a Hannibal Lecter style affair. Organic wine growers create a friendly ecosystem in the vineyard to eliminate the need for artificial intervention and to avoid the use of toxic chemicals that are harmful to the earth and to people drinking their wines.
