Our range of organic white wines includes unfiltered Grillo (winner of the International Organic Wine Award) and Roero Arneis.
Organic wines are harder and more expensive to produce. Winemakers must promote bio-diversity in the vineyard. They can only use natural fertilisers like animal manure or compost, and traditional minerals like gypsum, lime, rock phosphate and potash. Synthetic chemical fertilisers, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, pesticides, and genetically modified organisms aren’t permitted.
Organic winemaking was introduced by the European Regulation 203/2012. Some Italian regions go even further and develop their own standards for natural winemaking tailored to the local environment. One example is the Piemonte’s Green Experience system based on rich local traditions and respect for nature.
