Organic farming has been a popular topic not only in agriculture but also has extended to viticulture. Organic viticulture represents adopting organic agricultural principles with the objective in producing quality wine. While there is a lack of reliable rainfall and cost of chemical fertilizers is rising, organic viticulture may present an opportunity to reduce the need for repeated intervention by the viticulturist. That is because under careful vineyard and soil management, vines and soil become healthier. Quality wine produced under organic viticulture may satisfy the demands from an emerging market segment. However converting from traditional viticulture to organic or even biodynamic viticulture requires careful strategic planning. For certain countries such as Australia, getting certified cannot be accomplished in a short period of time. Most countries around the world are now implementing a lengthy and stringent certification process. To find out how your vineyard can be converted to organic viticulture, please contact us.
