Summary

When the production of wine is made from organically grown grapes resource and energy intensive procedures are to be avoided. Organic waste resulting from wine production must be recycled and returned to the soil. Waste water should not cause environmental pollution. The Bio Austria General Standard allows 3 oenological practices and describes positive lists for treating agents for must, wine and also for cleaning and disinfection. In addition there are rules for packaging and labelling.

Difference

The Bio Austria General Standard is more detailed as the EU Regulation 2092/91 does not cover the processing of vine.

Justification

In case of wine of organic grapes there is a lack of legal rules. The declaration of wine needs to describe the oenological practices. This creates transparency and ensures consumer confidence.
