Organic or biodynamic wine?

Organic or biodynamic wine?

The growth of organic and biodynamic viticulture continues, and Italy confirms its leading role.

Organic wine is made from grapes grown with farming methods which do not use synthetic
chemicals, nor GMOs. In addition, only oenological products and processes approved in accordance
with regulation 203/2012 are used in this wine production. The addition of chemicals is avoided,
but it is still used by traditional wine making to correct wine.

Organic wine follows the rules of organic agriculture, whereas biodynamic wine is derived from
biodynamic farming.
Biodynamic farming, still considered a niche, is regulated by Demeter, the certification organization
for biodynamic agriculture. It is based on the respect for the natural course of nature, in particular
the lunar phases, the natural resources, as well as the use of biodynamic preparations
(natural fertilizer) at certain seasons.

The result of this cultivation are naturally healthy and high quality plants able to defend themselves
from pests. Like organic wine, biodynamic wine restrains the use of sulphites, and is almost
entirely exempt.

These two wine categories are among the most sustainable wines. There are other growing areas
from which different wines emerge, such as Vino Libero, natural wines or triple “A” wines.

However, preservation and storage remain the same for organic or biodynamic wine as for
classic wine.
We should therefore be careful to keep wine bottles at a constant temperature, they should also
be protected from UV rays, vibrations and strong odours.

Here, too, the Datron wine coolers become perfect for storing wine under best conditions.
