What are organic and biodynamic wines?
Organic and biodynamic vineyards are managed without the use of synthetic chemical fungicides, insecticides, pesticides, weedkillers or fertilisers. Rules regarding what can be used to nourish the soils must be followed and GMOs are prohibited. Organic production methods combine good environmental practices, a high level of biodiversity, the preservation of natural resources and, when relevant, high animal welfare standards.
What about at the winery? Various manipulations and about 80 additives are allowed by the legislation for any producer to use during the winemaking process. There are products for stabilising, clarifying, filtering, aromatising, acidifying etc... There are also enzymes and products to help during fermentation, preserve the colour, change the texture of the wine etc...
Most organic producers tend to limit the use of these products.
One thing is certain: at winecraft we don't sell a single industrial wine. Certified or not, all our producers are organic or biodynamic and none of them uses additives nor technological manipulations.
Why do you have so few wines?
Choice is deceptive - you can find literally thousands of different wines at other importers, but that doesn't help you to find the right wine. We aim for the opposite, offering a radically small, but often changing, selection of great wines which are excellent value for money.
Why have I not heard about winecraft before?
We have been supplying restaurants and selected shops in the UK since 2016, so we are a fairly young company, but experienced beyond our years having experience in the wine and food industry for a decade, and are particularly experienced in organic and biodynamic wines.
