Summary

In the NATURLAND standards for the production of wine the following aspects are regulated: Processing procedures and additives, cleaning agents and disinfectants and packaging. The standard is applicable to the production of grape juice, wine, sparkling wine or spirits. It applies in addition to national regulations. (NL standards on production, Part VII. Viniculture and vine production, 5. Processing)

Difference

The production of wine is not yet regulated by the EU Regulation 2092/91.

Justification

All procedures and measures when processing grapes and producing juice, wine and sparkling wine have to be directed at the following aims: - manufacture of produce of superior quality - avoidance of procedures which intensively use raw materials and energy - sulphurous acid should be kept to a minimum - avoidance of all substances which are harmful to the environment and dangerous to the health in their production, use and disposal - processing and treatment of all organic residues resulting from production in such a way that they do not damage the environment. Marc, yeast and clarification dregs are to be recycled in the course of production as organic fertilizer. (NL standards on production, Part VII. Viniculture and vine production, 5. Processing)
