Many people do not know that grapes accumulate more harmful pesticides and herbicides than most other fruit. It means that conventional wines are not just alcohol, they come with additional harmful toxins. Why do you need to drink it?
Organic wine is made from grapes grown organically. Organic farming presumes that no harmful pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and chemical fertilisers are allowed to grow the grapes. No artificial or synthetic preservatives were used, no colours added and no agents added to alter the taste; obviously nothing genetically modified.
Common sense tells us that less toxins and less harmful substances will mean healthier you. That is how you can care for yourself better.
Additionally, if you look at the bigger picture, organic viticulture means a better care for the environment. It takes over 3 years to convert a regular vineyard to a certified organic. Yet can you imagine how much harm intense spraying causes the soil? Some farmers say that after 7 years of an intense chemical fertilisation and spraying with herbicides they cannot even grow carrots there. Soil will then need to ‘rest’ for years and years since it will have a chance to be fertile again. Shockingly terrifying.
Organic wines are richer in nutrients & antioxidants* with no harmful pesticide residue.
Natural & sulphite free are living wines, lighter & better consumed by your liver, no allergy reaction or sulphite intolerance.
World Health Organisation recommends that only 0.7mg/l of sulphites (sulfites) should be consumed per 1 kg of weight per day. It means that an adult of 70kg weight, who bought natural wine that contains 30 mg/l naturally occurring sulphites, can have a few large glasses of wine (up to half bottle). Obviously, when conventional wines containing over 150 mg/l it means much more harm to your body.
Vegan wines: no animal derived materials used for filtration or fining.
Biodynamic wines are made in sync with nature, herbal treatments are used, growers create a sustainable ecosystem.
