Strictly speaking, there is no organic wine today. Instead, we have “wine produced from organically grown grapes”. This is because it is not defined what “organic” means in the winery, only what it means in the field. There is an ongoing EU research project, called ORWINE, that aims to define what organic winemaking should mean – what processes can be used, what substances can be added etc. The project recently organised a conference in Siena where BKWines reporter in Italy participated. It is clear that there is a long way to go since the perspectives are very different in different countries. But if all goes well it will not be too long before we have really organic wines.
