Many of the best organic producers are choosing not to label their wines 'organic'. And that's fine, but it's not helpful when you're actually searching for an organic wine.

Saint-Emilion While organic wine is exploding in popularity for its natural taste, health benefits, and eco-friendly approach, hundreds of the best organic and bio-dynamic wines are 'hidden' to organic consumers because they're labeled and listed as regular wines. New website Organicwinefind.com is helping consumers find these 'undercover' organic wines from around the world.
“Many of the best organic producers are choosing not to label their wines 'organic'. They want to compete purely on taste, without being pigeon-holed. And that's fine, but it's not helpful when you're actually searching for an organic wine.” says Matt Criticos of Organicwinefind.com. “And the irony is that some pretty mediocre winemakers are becoming 'organic' to get in on the action, and they are labeling. So you've got some good wines labeled organic, you've got some bad wines labeled organic, and you've got the best not labeled at all!” Bottom line is that if you're looking for great organic wine don't rely on the 'organic section' or the labels. It pays to do some homework.
