Every year there are more organic wines being made in the Penedès. This is not just a fad, it has been shown that the benefits of wine increase with organic farming. For this reason more and more Penedès wineries are committed to producing 100% organic wine.
Organic wines must be certified as such for the sensitivity and sustainability of the entire winemaking process.
Vineyards can not treated with chemical or systemic products, and use organic fertilizers that respect the natural environment, biodiversity and, of course, our health. Moreover, in the winery very little sulphur dioxide is used, keeping sulfites to a minimum.
If you want to buy organic wine it is important to check for the seal of the Catalan Council of Ecological Agricultural Production (CCPAE) on the label.
