ORGANIC WINE

I love organic wine!  Organic wine means fewer pesticides, no artificial fertilisers and lower levels of sulphur dioxide (plus I personally think that it often tastes better than 'non-organic' wine).   

 

If you are sensitive to sulphur, too much sulphur dioxide in your wine might make you feel hungover when you haven't actually drunk very much at all.  However, in my experience, a hangover is generally caused by drinking too much wine (sorry!).   Please enjoy my organic wines in moderation and keep yourself hydrated by drinking lots of water.
