What is organic wine?
An organic wine is a type of wine made from grapes that have been grown without the use of synthetic herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers. Organic growers use natural fertilizers and rely on biological pest management to grow the grapes, rather than chemical inputs. Additionally, organic wine production also requires that no artificial preservatives, flavors, colors, or other additives are used during the winemaking process. Organic wines are often considered to be healthier and more eco-friendly than conventional wines.
To find an organic wine, you can look for the "Certified Organic" label on the back wine bottle which is green with white stars in the shape of a leaf which indicates that the grapes used to make the wine were grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or other chemicals. You can also look for wines labeled "biodynamic" or "sustainable," which similarly promote environmentally conscious farming practices.
True or False?
Organic wine doesn't give you a hangover.
This is false.
Sorry everyone, but drinking organic wine will not have an affect on whether or not you’ll get a hangover. Organic wine still has alcohol in it and alcohol is what gives you a hangover - it’s nothing to do with anything else in the wine or how the grapes are farmed.
