Organic vs. Organically-Grown
There are two common labels for organic wines: ‘organic’ and ‘made with organically grown grapes.’ So what’s the difference? A wine that is labeled ‘organically-grown’ means that no pesticides or synthetics were used in the vineyard. However, additives can be used during winemaking, including sulfites. For a wine to be ‘certified organic,’ it has to be made solely with organic grapes and it cannot have any added sulfites or non-organic elements added during the winemaking process. Sulfites occur naturally in grapes during fermenation, so no wine is completely sulfite-free, but those without added sulfites will often have sulfite levels so low they are undetectable.
Biodynamic Natural and Low intervention and Sustainable
Biodynamic and sustainable wines, while not regulated , promote the healthiness of the vineyard and the finished wine. Biodynamic wines are the result of a complex process that incorporates astrological influences and lunar cycles. In essence, this practice protects and encourages the delicate ecosystem to create pure wines, expressive of the vineyard and vintage. There are no synthetic chemicals allowed in growing the grapes or manipulations allowed during winemaking, such as the addition of yeast, sugar, acid, etc. (sulfites, however, are still allowed). Low intervention is minimal use of sulphate and any interference with the wine making process and cleansing agents used in the winery itself
No dairy products are used in the winery and no animal parts used in the filtering process.
Nowadays we see more natural products.
