Wine that is described as organic is not the result of any single process, because methods cultivating vines and of winemaking vary so widely.
Because different countries each have their own, or sometimes more than one, way of deciding that a wine should be certified as 'organic', the topic is a wide, deep and potentially controversial one.
Some growers and winemakers work organically, but prefer not to involve themselves in the bureaucratic systems of assessment and eventual approval.
Others feel that strict adherence to the local requirements for organic certification can lead to compromises that show in the finished wine.
There are also related approaches such as biodynamics and France's lutte raisonnée, and even the current interest in 'natural' wines, which overlap with organic agriculture.
Nonetheless, all the wines here are, to the best of our knowledge, produced organically in the generally understood sense of the term, and the majority of them carry a certifying mark on their labels.
