Organic

Organic wine is a product that’s been certified to organic standards by law. This means that you can be sure it has met strict requirements, covering everything from:

  • pesticide use,
  • and land management,
  • to preservation and storage

Wines certified by the UK Soil Association must meet strict criteria regarding the use of pesticides.

Of the 300 or so pesticides permitted under EU law, just 20 are permitted under organic standards, all of which derive from natural ingredients.

The term ‘natural wine’ is often used as an umbrella term to describe organic and biodynamic wines.

Many ‘natural wines’ are grown without herbicides or pesticides and the fermentation occurs without artificial additives, but there are no legal standards for this definition.

Biodynamic principles are largely similar to organic in growing methods and use of pesticides and herbicides, yet biodynamic growers tend to incorporate a more philosophical ethos to their farming, seeing agricultural sites as holistic organisms, with their own individual nature.
