Organic Wine?

Conventional winemakers may use any of 17 approved pesticides and herbicides on their grapes, which aren't washed before processing. If they wish, they can also add chemicals to change the flavor and acidity of their wines. Organic winemakers instead use beneficial insects and birds for pest control, and employ techniques like blending grapes picked at different stages of ripeness to finesse flavor.  For a wine to be called organic, both the grapes and the winemaking process must be certified according to specific guidelines, and no sulfites may be added to preserve the wine. (A small amount of sulfites exists in all wine; it's a byproduct of fermentation.) Winemakers who add natural sulfites but otherwise adhere to organic standards may use the term "made from organically grown grapes" on their labels.
