Wine Designations Explained

Sustainable wines are produced with the aim of minimizing environmental impact, supporting social responsibility, maintaining economic feasibility, while maintaining the high-quality of the product.

  • Organic wines are made from organic grapes without artificial chemical fertilisers or pesticides.
  • Biodynamic wines are produced according to the natural rhythms of the Earth. The growing processes are designated according to moon cycles and the principles of Rudolph Steiner, a scientist and philosophy who championed the biodynamic approach.
  • Natural wines are produced with zero or minimal intervention from the wine maker. These wines typically avoid the use of sulphites and additional additives.
  • Vegetarian/Vegan wines are clarified using exclusively mineral agents, rather than the animal or dairy products that are sometimes used at the end of the wine making process.
