It's about principle, it's about natural cultivation, natural grapes and in consequence natural wine!
Organic wine is about sustainability, it's about letting nature do its thing and achieving your own goals. Happy vines paired with beneficial insects and coughing earthworms. Polyculture instead of monoculture. Acting instead of reacting. "Nature" instead of "of course we use the chemical-synthetic club". Naturally on Vinello, your certified organic wine trade on principle.

What makes wine organic?
Wine has basically always been an organic product - of course it was possible to have an artificial influence on the vineyard and during vinification. But it was not until the last decade that organic became the focus of many food products - and interest in organic wine also increased. Many winemakers did not know what to make of the term. They had always grown and vinified their wine organically. It was only with new guidelines and regulations that wineries split into three categories. Conventional, Organic Wine and Biodynamic.
Back to the vineyard - organic from the beginning
In order to market their wines with the organic label, winemakers commit to working in a sustainable and natural way, from the vineyard to the cellar. The will for original taste, harmony with nature and oenological practices, has brought viticulture back to new old ways. Already in the ecosystem vineyard, the natural habitat of diverse flora and fauna is protected, supported and used. Basic fertilizers and plants with pest control effects are sown and nurtured between the vines. An optimal home for beneficial insects of all kinds that protect against pests. The vines are largely left to their own devices, becoming more resistant to disease and climate. Controversial is the use of sulfur and copper compounds without alternatives. These lawful sprays disinfect the grapes and help the plant against a variety of diseases. Copper, in particular, is the only known remedy against downy mildew. In organic farming, these are usually the only remedies; the plants do the rest. This also means a lower average yield compared to conventional wineries, but the reduction in quantity promises full-bodied wine. The vineyard is like a natural meadow where life springs forth and healthy, bio-active soil is created.
Biodynamic viticulture also helps itself with the cycle thoughts developed by Rudolf Steiner, which understands the entire construct of viticulture as an organism. As far as possible no inputs from outside, as far as possible no influences on the ecosystem. The vines are not helped, only optimal conditions are created in the soil. A well-known example of this is cow horns filled with cow dung, which together with cosmic forces serve as fertilizers and vitalize the soil.
Off to the cellar - organic wine without additives
In the wine cellar, a treasure trove of all kinds of additives and processes for conventional winemakers, frugality is the order of the day for organic winemakers. Energy- and raw material-intensive processes are avoided, so the winemaker also likes to get into the wine trough and press the grapes by foot. Any residues produced should not be a burden on the environment and are often returned to the natural cycle as fertilizer. The addition of sulfur, to form sulfites for a preservative effect, is also strictly regulated and kept to a minimum. Without additives and without elaborate cellar techniques, wines qualify for the label organic.
Organic wines: philosophy and future
The division of the wine world into conventional, organic and biodynamic, is rather questionable. Chemical-synthetic means are usually only the last step of winegrowers to solve unforeseen problems or to ensure economic viability. No farmer in the world deliberately destroys his basic stock. This helps neither the farmer and his descendants, nor his customers. For many, being a winemaker is not a job, but a vocation. They live with nature and not against it. And everyone knows that good, loosened and nutrient-rich soils are also good for the vines. The difference between exquisite organic wine and conventional wine is simply the winemakers' way of making tasty wine. Some respond to circumstances with methods, while others act preventively. How one chooses is a matter of principle that has no definitive influence on the final product.
Demeter, Bioland, the EU and organic wine
Organic wine means having no microbiological problems, so that even several years from now the soil will provide perfect conditions for healthy grapes. Several symbols have developed for wines from an all-around organic and sustainable cultivation, which you can check on every bottle. On the one hand the organic label of Demeter, Bioland, Ecovin, Naturland, and the association Ökohöfe, on the other hand the organic label of the EU, a waving leaf of 12 stars. By buying labeled organic wines, you support the organic process. You decide what you buy. The winemakers will follow suit. In the globalized world, where everything is becoming one-size-fits-all, qualitative unique selling points are imperative, and organic wine is making a start.
What is organic wine?
Organic wines are wines that, due to careful, organic and sustainable production, are awarded seals of quality by various associations. Organic cultivation begins in the vineyard by avoiding artificial fertilizers and conventional herbicides and pesticides. Instead, an attempt is made to achieve the same effect with beneficial insects and plants. In the winery, among other things, less sulfur is added to the wine and energy- and resource-intensive processes are avoided. The list of organic and low-impact practices is long and interpreted differently from winery to winery.
Why drink organic wine?
By buying organic wines you are influencing future wine industry decisions. If the trend of organic wines continues, more and more winemakers will switch to organic or even biodynamic farming. This is good for nature and people. In terms of taste, no sweeping statement can be made about quality; there are both good and mediocre wines from organic cultivation, just as there are in conventional cultivation.
