Sulfur-free and sulphite-free wines are now a category in the wine merchant's home. A wine without sulfur is not necessarily a BIO wine. It should be noted that a wine without sulfur does not exist since the alcoholic fermentation naturally produces some sulphites. It is better to talk about wine without added sulfur. Conventional wines contain between 160 mg / l and 260 mg / l, while the community of producers of added sulfur-free wines considers that levels between 30 and 40 mg / l on white wines and 20 to 30 mg / l on white wines. Red wines are acceptable concentrations. Sulfur gives wine its antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Sulfur is therefore an excellent wine preservative and prevents any resumption of fermentation in the bottle. A winemaker who works without added sulfur will therefore concentrate his efforts on perfect storage conditions for his harvest, for example with thermo-regulated tanks and vats, perfect storage and bottling conditions in order to limit the use of sulphites as much as possible. . All this has a cost but seems useful for the future of our planet and our health.
