The 2012 grape harvest to be the first when wine may be labelled ‘organic’

26 April 2012 - 11:41am -- Gerry Danby

This year’s harvest of organically grown grapes may be the first to end up in a bottle labelled ‘organic wine’.  Up until now the only EU-wide rule was that wine made from organically grown grapes, for which there are rules for organic production, could be labelled “wine from organic grapes”. Wine is the last sector not fully covered by EU rules on organic farming under Regulation (EU) 834/2007.
