On the 5th of June it is World Environment day, directed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the biggest platform for environmental disclosure, and it has been celebrated every 5th of June since 1973.
Zeena strongly believes that every little action counts and we want that our time on the planet contributes to leaving something better than when we were born.
This is why we went for vegan, organic products in cans.
Today we will talk about organic wines. Are you ready?
The terms organic, ecological and biological are comparable and are protected by the European Union. The use of the terms organic, biological, eco, ecological, ecological, organic, organic or biodynamic is prohibited if the products lack official certification.
But what exactly do we mean when we are talking about organic wine?
Organic wines are those produced from grapes, that are treated without any chemical products (such as fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides etc.) and it prioritizes the use of natural products such as compost.
What if there are, for example, diseases in the grapes? In that case, only permitted products are used, such as Bordeaux mixture (lime, copper sulfate and water). When we cultivate organically, we do it in a very similar way to traditional viticulture, which existed before wine production was industrialized.
Organic viticulture looks at nature, producing in the same way as it was done 50 years ago, but with today’s technology and ergonomic knowledge. The vineyard is worked manually and for fertilization products, such as composting, natural products are used. The soil is fundamental and is the reason for the existence of organic viticulture. It must be very rich in organic matter, and capable of retaining the inorganic minerals and ions that the plant needs for a healthy growth.
