Organic wine sales triple
18-25 year-olds make up one in five of the buyers
Organic wine sales have tripled in seven years to reach €1.2 billion in 2017 – with AOC wines accounting for four out of five of bottles sold.
Such has been the success that the Sudvinbio trade body in Occitanie said demand had outstripped supply and that could pose problems this year as its 2017 harvest was 25% down on normal.
Organic wine – vin bio – is made without chemical fertilisers or synthetic pesticides and has limits on sulfites in the wine.
