Organic is a severely misunderstood word. Organic wine has two sides, the vineyard practices and the winery practices, and to be called organic you must adhere to both.
Organic viticulture typically excludes the use of chemical fertilisers, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides on grape vines. Most organic viticulturists rely on copper and sulfur to control common diseases like powdery and downy mildew.
Organic winemaking typically allows most conventional manipulations. There is major controversy in the organic wine community over the addition of preservative 220 (sulphur dioxide), which is not an organic substance, but it is allowed to be added to wine.
