Absolute Organic Wine Limited is a Organic wine company based in Co Derry Northern Ireland. We deliver organic, biodynamic, natural and vegan wins throughout Ireland & UK. Absolute Organic Wine is a specialist in the importation of Organic Biodynamic, Natural and Vegan wines into Ireland and the UK, with the vegan and vegetarian status of wines ethically advised of.
We select the best examples of Organic Red wines, organic White wines, Organic Rosé wines, Organic Sweet wines, and Organic Sparkling wines from France Spain and Italy. Grape varieties that were lost, or had fallen out of fashion, in the rush of mass production of industrial chemical aided wines found in most big branded wines. We also try to focus on lower alcohol % wines.
Vegan Certified wines are made without any animal byproducts in the vineyard or the winery, and only use bentonite which is a type of clay, pea protein or potato protein to clarify the wine prior to bottling. Some our winemakers don't clarify their wines.
Organic Wines are wines grown without additional industrial chemicals. Biodynamic wines are grown organically in line with a special calendar used by the ancients before industrialisation of farming took place. The biodynamic calendar advises when it is best to plant and to drink. The app can be bought under the name of "When Wine Tastes Best" We would recommend that you download this app to find the best day or night to taste our wines.
Ireland is really coming into its own with the observation of the stars upon which our wines rely for best growth and flavour. There is even an observatory in the local Davagh Forest here in Northern Ireland, to learn the cycles of the Cosmos at your own pace if you are in this area
Our philosophy has always been to offer Organic & Biodynamic wines of quality, wines that offer outstanding value for money backed up with excellent service. We are a proud, local, independent family owned business and we will always try to keep things real. We have no ambitions to be anything other than just to be very good at what we do in an honest and sustainable manner with our customers, suppliers and staff.
