“Organic” sulphur to be launched next year

Sulphur is something that is naturally present in our environment and it is a product that is allowed for all wine producers – organic as well as conventional – both to combat fungal diseases in the vineyard and as an antioxidant in the finished wine. However, there is a certain demand from organic producers for an “organic” sulphur product. Most of the sulphur used today is a by-product of oil refining.

The company De Sangosse will next year launch a new product based on sulphur that can be used against the fungal disease oidium. The special thing about this product is that the sulphur comes from recycling of agricultural products. Residues from agriculture are used to produce biogas and the sulphur formed in the process is refined and used for this new product.
