What is organic wine
After a long legal period of many years, the European Regulation 203/2012 has put black and white on what it means to produce organic wine. If previously we could only speak of “wine produced with grapes from organic farming”, today it is all the production of wine to be regulated by precise rules. In particular, only the producers who can boast the Bio logo are:
– use only grapes grown with organic farming methods, therefore without synthetic chemicals and without GMOs;
– they make wine using only the oenological products and processes authorized by regulation 203/2012, avoiding the addition of chemicals normally used to correct wine.
Among the latter, the most important provision is that which defines the maximum amount of sulfites that may be present in organic wine: 100 mg / l for red wines and 150 mg / l for white and rosé.
