Organic Wines

Is organic wine healthy?

Why organic wine?

Many people do not know this, but grapes accumulate more harmful pesticides and herbicides than most other fruits. It means that conventional wines are not just alcohol, they come with additional harmful toxins. So why should you have to drink it?

Organic wine is made from grapes grown organically. Organic farming requires that no harmful pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and chemical fertilisers are allowed to grow the grapes. No artificial or synthetic preservatives were used, no colours added and no agents added to alter the taste; obviously nothing genetically modified too.

Common sense tells us that less toxins and less harmful substances will mean a better you.

Additionally, if you look at the bigger picture, organic viticulture means a better care for the environment. It takes over 3 years to convert a regular vineyard to be certified organic. Yet can you imagine how much harm intense spraying causes the soil? Some farmers say that after 7 years of an intense chemical fertilisation and spraying with herbicides, you wouldn’t be able to grow carrots there. Soil will then need to ‘rest’ for years and years since it will have a chance to be fertile again. Shockingly terrifying.

Organic wines are richer in nutrients & antioxidants* with no harmful pesticide residue.

No added sulphites wines: living wines, lighter & better consumed by your liver, no allergy reaction or sulphite intolerance.

World Health Organisation recommends that only 0.7mg/l of sulphites (sulfites) should be consumed per 1 kg of weight per day. It means that an adult of 70kg weight, who bought natural wine that contains 30 mg/l naturally occurring sulphites, can have a few large glasses of wine (up to half bottle). Obviously, when conventional wines containing over 150 mg/l it means much more harm to your body.

Vegan wines: no animal derived materials used for filtration or fining.

Biodynamic wines:these are made in sync with nature, by following the lunar calander, using herbal treatments and creating a sustainable ecosystem.
