Organic wine is produced from grapes that are cultivated without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). To add, the winemaking process for organic wine prohibits the inclusion of sulfites or other chemical additives. Organizations, which uphold stringent standards for organic farming and winemaking, certify organic wines.
Organic wine production adheres to a rigorous protocol, which requires a three-year evaluation process for certification. Moreover, certified organic wine makers, as well as biodynamic and vegan wine makers, are subject to yearly inspections to ensure compliance with organic, biodynamic, and vegan guidelines. During the growing and harvesting of organic wine, chemicals and other synthetic materials are not allowed, and the use of additives in the fermentation process is strictly prohibited. In the case of vegan wine, the use of animal by-products is also not allowed.
A certified organic wine label displayed on a bottle of wine provides assurance to consumers that the wine was produced organically in a certified organic winery, without the use of harmful chemicals and pesticides. Similarly, vegan wine, which has a vegan symbol displayed on the label, is also gaining popularity in Ireland and the UK. Our collection of organic wines is an excellent representation of the various regions where they are grown.
