What makes wine organic?
Wine has basically always been an organic product - of course it was possible to have an artificial influence on the vineyard and during vinification. But it was only in the course of the last decade that organic became the focus of many foodstuffs - and interest in organic wine also increased. However, many vintners did not know what to do with the term. They have always grown and vinified their wine organically. Only with new guidelines and regulations did the wineries split into 3 categories. Conventional, Organic Wine and Biodynamic.
Back to the vineyard - organic from the beginning
In order to market their wines with the organic label, winegrowers undertake to work in a sustainable and natural way, from the vineyard to the cellar. The will for original taste, harmony with nature and oenological processes have brought viticulture back to new old ways. Already in the ecosystem vineyard, the natural habitat of diverse flora and fauna is protected, supported and used. Basic fertilizer and plants with pest control effects are sown and nurtured between the vines. An optimal home for beneficial insects of all kinds that protect against pests. The vines are largely left to their own devices, becoming more resistant to disease and climate. The alternative use of sulphur and copper compounds is controversial. These legally compliant sprays disinfect the grapes and help the plant against a variety of diseases. Copper in particular is the only known remedy against downy mildew. In organic farming, these are usually the only remedies; the plants do the rest. This also means a lower average yield compared to conventional wineries, but the reduction in quantity promises full-bodied wine. The vineyard resembles a natural meadow where life springs forth and healthy, bio-active soil is created.
Biodynamic viticulture also helps itself with the cycle thoughts developed by Rudolf Steiner, which understands the entire construct of viticulture as an organism. As far as possible no inputs from outside, as far as possible no influences on the ecosystem. The vines are not helped, only optimal conditions are created in the soil. A well-known example of this are cow horns filled with cow dung, which together with cosmic forces serve as fertilizer and vitalization of the soil.
Off to the cellar - organic wine without additives
In the wine cellar, with conventional vintners a treasure trove of all kinds of additives and processes, with organic vintners thriftiness is the order of the day. Energy- and raw material-intensive procedures are avoided, so the winegrower likes to get into the wine trough and press the grapes by foot. Any leftovers should not be a burden on the environment and are often returned to the natural cycle as fertilizer. The addition of sulfur, to form sulfites for a preservative effect, is also strictly regulated and is reduced to a minimum. Without additives and without elaborate cellar techniques, wines qualify for the label organic.
Organic wines: philosophy and future
The division of the wine world into conventional, organic and biodynamic, is rather questionable. Chemical-synthetic means are mostly only the last step of the winegrowers to solve unforeseen problems or to ensure profitability. No farmer in the world deliberately destroys his base stock. This does not help the farmer, his descendants, his customers. For many, being a winemaker is not a job, but a vocation. They live with nature and not against it. And everyone knows that good, loosened and nutrient-rich soils are also good for the vines. The difference between exquisite organic wine and conventional wine is simply the winemakers' way of making tasty wine. Some react to circumstances with methods, others act preventively. How one chooses is a matter of principle that has no final influence on the final product.
Demeter, Bioland, the EU and organic wine
Organic wine means having no microbiological problems, so that even in several years the soil offers perfect conditions for healthy grapes. For wines from an all-round organic and sustainable cultivation, several symbols have developed, which you can check on every bottle. On the one hand the organic label of Demeter, Bioland, Ecovin, Naturland, and the Verbund Ökohöfe, on the other hand the organic label of the EU, a waving leaf of 12 stars. By buying labelled organic wines you support the organic process. You decide what you buy. The winegrowers will follow suit. In the globalized world, where everything is becoming one-size-fits-all, qualitative unique selling propositions are imperative, organic wine is making a start.
What is organic wine?
Organic wines are wines which, through careful, organic and sustainable production, have been awarded a seal of quality by various associations. Organic cultivation begins in the vineyard by avoiding artificial fertilizers and conventional herbicides and pesticides. Instead, an attempt is made to achieve the same effect with beneficial insects and plants. In the wine cellar, among other things, less sulphur is added to the wine and energy- and resource-intensive processes are avoided. The list of organic and low-impact practices is numerous and interpreted differently from winery to winery.
Why drink organic wine?
By buying organic wines, you are influencing future wine industry decisions. If the trend of organic wines continues, more and more winemakers will switch to organic or even biodynamic farming. This is good for nature and mankind. In terms of taste, no sweeping statement can be made about quality; there are both good and mediocre wines from organic cultivation, just as there are in conventional cultivation.
