Organic 101

USDA Organic:

Wine made with certified organically grown grapes simply means that there are no pesticides, fungicides, synthetic fertilizers or chemicals allowed on the vines or in the soil.

Our Daily Wines are USDA Organic Certified, which requires certification of both the vineyards and the winemaking facility.

No Detectible Sulfites:

By definition, no sulfites can be added to USDA certified organic wines, even though organically grown grapes have naturally occurring elemental sulfur. To be a no detectible sulfites wine, only trace amounts of sulfur may exist: less than 10 ppm. Our Daily Wines are among the few wines that contain no detectible sulfites.

How to we accomplish this? Zero sulfites are added before or after fermentation. The natural antioxidants in the wine, tannins and color molecules, act to scavenge oxygen. During fermentation, any elemental sulfur that may be naturally present in the grapes is converted to a gaseous form, and is blown off during the remaining fermentation process.

Gluten Free:

Our wines do not contain proteins that occur naturally in wheat, rye, barley and other types of hybrids of these grains.

Vegan:

Our wines do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or dairy products.
