About Organic Wines
The Organic movement has been gaining popularity not just in food production, but in wine production as well. People have become more and more interested in supporting processes that not only protect the Earth, but their bodies as well.

“Before wine can be sold as organic, both the growing of the grapes and their conversion to wine must be certified. This includes making sure grapes are grown without synthetic fertilizers and in a manner that protects the environment and preserves the soil. Other agricultural ingredients that go into the wine, such as yeast, also have to be certified organic.

Wines that are sold as “made with organic grapes” have different requirements than organic wine. When a wine is labeled as being made with organic grapes, 100% of those grapes used must be certified organic. Yeast and any other agricultural ingredients aren’t required to be organic, but have to be produced without excluded methods (like genetic engineering). As for non-agricultural ingredients, these have to be specifically allowed on the National List. Finally, sulfites may be added to wines that carry the “made with organic grapes” label—up to 100 parts per million.” -USDA

Production Classifications:

Organic Wine | Made from 100% organically grown ingredients and has been monitored throughout the entire production process. Often carries legal certification from USDA.

Biodynamic Wines | Practices carried out in an effort to balance the entire vineyard with nature and the moon cycles. This practice stems from the belief that the vineyard is one ecosystem that only when in balance can grow the best fruit. No legal certification.

Sustainable Wine | Farming that is good for the environment while also paying attention to the economics. If something doesn’t make sense economically for the winery, they might skip that step. No legal certification.
