A European Project, ORWINE, over the last three years has been evaluating winemaking practices in order to provide the European Commission scientific support for the implementation of EU regulations to control the production of Organic Wine.
Up until now, there are only regulations and guidelines for the production of Organic grapes in the vineyard. Then in the winery, the processing of Organic grapes was more left to the discretion of the winemaker!
Orwine will be holding a meeting on February 6th 2009 in Siena, Italy, to discuss the subject and the results of their research and studies.
I will certainly be curious to see what additives and practices will be allowed or not...
