Organic wine?

In oenology, the term designating the wine which originates from having practiced organic viticulture. In many countries, oenological practices for making organic wines are sanctioned by more or less stringent laws, which in general forbid the majority of products employed in tradicional winemaking, besides permitting a minimal usage of sulphur dioxide. In this respect, the utilisation of wild yeasts is favoured against commercial strains. Making organic wines is very labour-intensive and hence expensive. Moreover, it is quite risky, for the maximun levels of sulphur-based compounds imposed on wines are sometimes so low that they are more prone to contamination and refermentations.
