"Green" Wines - Organic, Natural, Biodynamic, Sustainable

The misunderstanding about sulfites in organic wines is definitely clarified here, that is, to be certified an organic wine by USDA - a wine must NOT contain added sulfites including sulfites which naturally occur during the fermentation process in wine-making.

To justify naturally occurring sulfites in wine, organic wines are either certified by another organic entity/organization OR otherwise use the term "made with organically grown grapes".

Using a holistic approach encompassing sustainability, organic, being biodynamic and natural in the area of wines and wine-making, wines that go green will surely be appreciated by the eco-conscious group that looks to integrate organic/natural with fine-wine drinking.
