ORGANIC WINE: A DEFINITION

Ca’ Boffenisio has chosen to adopt organic farming since the beginning of its activity, but what is meant by organic wine?

Talking about organic wine refers to the reduction of chemical interventions in the vineyard and in the winery, the certification of the product and the processing techniques according to European standards. Organic wine is presented to consumers with a universally identifiable mark of quality  which consists in the elimination of chemicals and limitation of sulphites, as well as the reduction of used water and the choice of biological breeding rules that prevent pests naturally .

The amount of sulfites under current regulations for organic wines should not exceed 100 mg/l for red and 150 mg/l for white and rosé wines (about 50 mg/l less than conventional wines). The only exceptions are the wines of central and northern Europe, which are more sugary, arriving at 120 mg/l for red wines and 170 mg/l for white wines.

In essence, organic wines seeks to reconcile environmental protection with the genuineness of the foods we consume.
Producing and choosing organic wine means to respect and safeguard the environment and the consumer.
