Organic farming

A few words about the organic farming and the organic wine.

Organic cultivation of vine cultivation method in which, in accordance with European Union regulation, implemented specific practices for the production of grapes. These practices involve fertilization and plant protection. The lubrication applied for the maintenance of soil fertility, must be done with plant and animal residues. The plant protection to address diseases and insects that infect plants of vine, must be done with the help of some approved chemical compounds, microbiological preparations and beneficial insects, which are fighting the enemies of the vine. Organic wine is a wine made from grapes that have been grown without the use of artificial or synthetic chemicals, such as herbicides and pesticides. Organic farmers work with nature, not against it, to enhance the biodiversity of their vineyard. For example, promoting the technique of vines covered-cover i.e. the vines to form a Habitat for beneficial insects that are the natural enemy of problematic species. Still have a small flock of sheep to graze between the rows of vine, and to eat the grass and weeds. In this way, the grapevine becomes a self-adjustable, natural ecosystem, which is able to fight its own problems in crop and don't need artificial, potentially toxic chemicals. Today, you will no doubt find many organic labels of wines listed on the shelf of the store or to the list of wines of your favorite small bar. But what I really need to watch out for is the organic wine to be certified. The certification given by an independent third party who conducts annual audits in the vineyards that have submitted an application for organic certification, to ensure that the grapes developed comply with the strict specifications of both the particular certification authority and the Ministry of agriculture. It is illegal for the winemaker to sell or promote their wine as organic, where has not been certified.
