Italian organic and low-sulphite wine

Italain organic wine label

Grapes for Italian organic wines (vino biologico in Italian) are cultivated in a way which preserves the natural balance between the vineyard and the surrounding environment. Organic winemaking was introduced by European Regulation 203/2013, and differentiates European organic wines from those produced elsewhere in the world.

The regulation requires organic winemakers to promote biodiversity within the vineyard. The soil has to be managed in a sustainable way with natural fertilisers like animal manure and compost. For fertilisers, only naturally occurring minerals, like gypsum, lime, rock phosphate and potash, can be used. Synthetic chemical fertilisers, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, pesticides, and genetically modified organisms aren't permitted. In the cellar, the rules restrict the use of additives and limit the amount of sulphur dioxide (sulphites) used in preservation.

Italy is one of the leading countries in the world for organic wine. It has over fifty thousand hectares dedicated to organic grape growing, and is only beaten by France and Spain.
