Organic wines are produced with organically grown grapes. In order to have organically grown grapes, a vineyard manager must implement an entirely different set of practices to maintain their vines and These practices must be carried out for three years before a vineyard can be certified organic.
Organic doesn’t imply that the wine doesn’t have additives. There is, in fact, a list of additives, including things like yeast, egg whites, and animal enzymes (like rennet in cheese) that are allowed in organic wines. Being organic doesn’t necessarily mean a wine is vegan.
Dilemma with Organic Wine - Perhaps you’ve seen a lot more European organic (called ‘bio’) wines and this is because Europe has a different definition of organic: USA: “a wine made from organically grown grapes without added sulfites” Europe and Canada: “a wine made from organically grown grapes that may contain added sulfites”.
Organic wines from the US must not add sulfites, which in most scenarios greatly reduces a wine’s shelf life and, in some cases, can substantially change the flavor. Wineries find themselves in a quandary because spending the time to make.
