FAQ's about the wines we sell

In terms of grape-growing, ORGANIC agriculture is a holistic agricultural management system focused on ecosystem health and using only natural forms of fertilisers, herbicides, pesticides or other inputs. Organic farming is mindful of the environment; farming in ways which minimise the impact on the land and using resources in a sustainable manner. For more information on organic wine, read the full article .
No. In Australia, organic & biodynamic wine standards allow for a minimal amount of sulphur dioxide preservative to be added. We do stock many preservative free wines, most of these are organic. Our website clearly indicates whether a wine is organic, biodynamic, preservative free, vegan etc. Customers can easily search by category using the “Our Wine” menu. 
Not exactly, but for practical purposes we use the terms "preservative free" and "no added preservative" interchangeably. Even wines that have had no sulphur dioxide added in the winemaking process can still contain minute quantities, as sulphur dioxide can be produced naturally during fermentation.

We have hundreds of happy customers, who are sensitive to sulphur dioxide, buying wines in our "preservative free/no added preservative" range with no ill-effects. For more details please read the Wine & Preservatives article.
While organic farming in simple terms is all about natural and sustainable practices without the use of synthetic chemicals of any kind; biodynamics is all this and more.

Biodynamics; sometimes referred to as 'enhanced organic' or 'super-charged organic', has an overarching philosophy derived from the teachings of 1920’s Austrian philosopher, Rudolf Steiner. This holistic approach to agriculture, where all animals, plants and the solar system are seen as living inter-related systems impacting on each other, is the core of biodynamics. In practice; biodynamics is very much about soil health, using natural homeopathic preparations to enliven the earth and the vineyard. Vineyard activities are also undertaken in tune with cosmic rhythms, particularly lunar cycles. It is a fascinating area and worth further reading
There is no set definition of natural wine. In essence; natural wines are made with as few interventions or additions, and as little technology, as possible. Modern wines can be made using commercial yeasts, vitamins, enzymes, added tannins or acids, and may be fined and with egg/milk/fish bladders to remove imperfections. In the past, the wine was simply made by fermenting crushed grapes; and many winemakers are harking back to this minimalist tradition to create excitingly different wines.

Vegan suitable wines do not use animal derived products in the wine making process. During winemaking, products called "fining agents" can be employed to remove undesirable flavours or visual characteristic. Many of these fining agents are animal-derived; egg whites, milk powder or fish bladders (isinglass). A vegan suitable wine avoids the use of these products, and, if fined will use alternative mineral based agents, such as bentonite clay.
