organic viticulture

Definition

Wine

  • the philosophy and practice of growing vines without the use of many chemicals, either as fertilisers or pesticides. Grasses and other plants may be grown between the vines to help improve the soil and also compete with the vines for water and nutrients in the soil, leading to less vigorous growth of the shoots and leaves, which allows more sunlight onto the berries ensuring that they ripen well.
