The expansion of organic wine 2023

Organic viticulture


In 10 years, the number of organic wine growers has tripled. Today, organic winegrowers represent around 9% of all French vineyards.

But what is an organic wine? How does it differ from conventional wine? And how does one become an “organic vineyard”?

Organic wines

First of all, an “organic” wine is one that respects the basic principle of organic farming: it is produced without the use of fertilizers or chemicals. This is an honorable choice, but it has consequences. Going chemical-free means paying more attention to the vines, and therefore more staff.

An organic wine is made from organic raw materials, and its conception and vinification must follow precise specifications laid down by the European Commission. The winemaking process is more complex than that of a conventional wine, but allows the winemaker to present a clean, certified organic product.

In terms of taste, organic wines have a more flavorful maturity. A good white wine will have a greater volume of flavor, and a good red wine will have an extra acidity that guarantees a particular balance. Organic wine certification generally takes 3 years.

During this three-year period, the vineyard will be “in organic conversion”, and will be monitored very closely by the certification body in question. To date, only 2 main organizations – Biodivyn and Demeter – issue this certification.
