Buy Organic Wines
Organic wines are a type of wine from organic farming or, better said, organic viticulture, that is, one framed within the generic denomination "Organic Agriculture" ruled institutionally with some basic requirements such as:
- Use of natural organic fertilizers.
- Use of fertilizers of animal origin, absolute prohibition of mineral substances and other treatments.
- Prohibition on the use of fertilizers and other substances harmful to health.
- Treatment and preservation of wine without additives that have negative effects on health.
But the main differentiation with respect to the traditional crop is the use in smaller proportion of the Sulfuroso, as well as fertilizers and chemists that try to avoid plagues and diseases in the vine. In return other techniques are used increasingly implemented as the plant cover and hedges such as roses, blackberry, plum ... which attract predatory insects considered "ecological insecticides" for their work in pest control, avoiding an economic cost overrun in fertilizers and unnecessary sulfur chemicals.
The quality of the vine will depend to a large extent on the fertility of the soils on which they settle, hence the importance of improving their fertility with techniques such as the contribution of organic matter such as manure, compost, remnants of pruning. • Use of plant cover that reduces soil erosion to a large extent, in addition to other benefits it brings to the plant such as pest control.
Biodynamic viticulture is a type of ecological agriculture based on theories formulated by the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner at the beginning of the 20th century.
One of the fundamentals of biodynamics is to consider the soil as an organic identity that contains independent organisms where the priority for the grower has to be the health and well-being of crops and animals. For the cultivation of vineyards it is essential to prepare them by techniques such as cow horn burying it in autumn and its decomposition in winter, and ground quartz powder as an element that prevents pests and diseases.
