This article aims to provide an overview of the sector of organic wine production in the European Union. New EU rules for “organic wine” establish a subset of oenological practices and substances for organic wines and represent a solid basis for further development of the organic wine sector. Although the new rules are a good political compromise about the level of sulphites reduction in organic wine, they offer a clear benefit to consumers and have the advantage of improved transparency. As of August 2012, organic wine growers can use term “organic wine” on their labels with the EU organic logo replacing the label “wine made from organic grapes” for products produced before 31 July 2012.
