Organic wines are farmed according to the principles of organic agriculture.
This means that the wines are grown without the use of synthetic fertilisers, herbicides, insecticides, or fungicides. This is great for the fruit as it allows the grapes to take on more nuanced flavours of the terroir as well as fruit purity and aromas. However, looking at organic wines from a larger spectrum it is greatly beneficial for the local environment and people/animals surrounding it.
It is important to note that organic wines are not necessarily vegan (although at Act Of Wine all our wines are vegan). Nor does it mean the wines do not contain sulfur (check out our Low Sulfur wines collection for more info).
All in all, organic wines take a lot more attentiveness, responsibility and manual work, but the results are well worth it.
