It's often not clear why certain wines are labeled with certain terms. In their periodic articles, Cellars Wine Club endeavors to clear up these confusing terms. Their latest wine club article focuses on the word “organic” and what it means when it is printed on a bottle of wine.
“Organic”, while not the most ambiguous of terms, does have implications that are not immediately clear without a deeper look, explains the article.
Getting certified as “organic” is required in most countries, says the article, in order use the term on the label. They explain that this is easier said than done: “In the United States, the National Organic Program, a part of the U.S. Depart of Agriculture, is in charge of certifying organic wine. The regulations extend to the type of yeast used in fermentation and storage conditions. European countries also have their own rules and condition criteria for European organic certified wine.”
Many countries also regulate the amount of sulfur dioxide (a preservative) contained in organic wine, elaborates Cellars Wine Club. In the U.S. this is regulated to under 20 parts per million.
Cellars Wine Club offers a few wine club packages that include organic wines, for those who wish to try them out for themselves without the hassle of going to a store.
