Organic wine is produced by growing grapes without using harmful fertilizers or chemicals. Organic wine started to attract attention after growing health problems and an increasing focus on healthy living. Therefore, the growing demand for organic wine has positively affected the number of organic vines. Favorable climatic conditions, positive governmental approaches and a focus on sustainable agriculture are some of the important factors that influence the growth of the organic wine market across the globe. In addition, the increase in demand for healthy food, as well as the increase in the single income, increased the demand for organic wine.
Recently, in April, 2021, Veuve du Vernay, the No. 1 French sparkling wine brand in the United States, announced the sale of Sparkling Brut Organic in the U.S. market. The wine will be available in select stores across the country. Sparkling Brut Organic was created using the Blanc de Blancs Charmat method and is made using organic and sustainable farming practices. It is organically certified under the French name NOP3, a certificate recognized in the United States. The growing consumer awareness of organic and sustainable wines has forced Veuve du Vernay to add Brut Organic to its offering and show its unique approach to wine style.
