5 Reasons to Try Organic Bubbly

4th March 2019


It’s easy to see why sparkling wine of all kinds is becoming increasingly popular; it’s more readily available than ever before with some varieties offering superb value for money and it offers a touch of class that’s perfect for a special occasion or for everyday drinking. Organic food and drink are also very much in vogue, so it’s little surprise that many forward thinking winemakers have been combining these two elements. Here are five reasons why you should try organic bubbly today and why it’s likely to become even more popular in the years to come.

1. It Contains More Antioxidants

Scientists are increasingly becoming aware of the health benefits of certain antioxidants, which have been linked to the fight against many forms of cancer, and polyphenols including resveratrol. It’s a stilbenoid which is found in peanuts, blueberries and raspberries as well as in the skin of grapes; health benefits associated with resveratrol include lowering blood pressure and improving brain function and cognitive response times. Whilst it can typically be found in most wines and sparkling wines, organic wines and bubbly have been shown to contain around 32 percent more resveratrol than still wines.

2. It Has Less Sulfites

Whilst increasing our intake of polyphenols and antioxidants brings benefits, the same cannot be said of sulfites, as they have been shown to cause allergic reactions to some people, and the larger the exposure to them, the greater the risk. Sulfites occur naturally in wine in small doses as a result of the process of fermentation, but extra doses of sulfites are then often added to wine because of their preservative properties. For this reason, organic wine which places an emphasis upon natural production is likely to have a lower sulfite content and therefore be less likely to produce an allergic reaction. If you’ve ever felt bad after a glass of wine, sulfite reaction could be a possible reason, so it may be worth making the organic switch. Vintage Roots are specialist suppliers of organic wine with a wealth of experience and they sell organic Champagne, Prosecco, Merlot spumante and more at prices that are more than reasonable. They even sell reduced alcohol organic sparkling wine in the form of a 5% Torelli Moscato d’Asti, which is ideal for those who don’t want to contemplate a headache.

3. It’s Vegetarian and Vegan Friendly

There’s been a large increase in the number of people committing to vegetarian and vegan diets in recent years, which can be great news for our animal population and for the environment we and they live in. What some vegetarians and vegans may not know, however, is that the wine they drink may not be suitable for their diet. The stabilising process known as fining can use a variety of ingredients that are passed through the wine and these can include egg whites, chicken, fish and gelatine. Organic sparkling wines, on the other hand, will not have undergone this process and vegans can, therefore, drink it with a clear conscience.

4. It’s Better for the Environment

The effects of climate change can be seen all around us, wherever in the world we live, and few now deny the influence that mankind is having upon it. From rising sea levels leading to tsunamis, forest fires, floods and droughts, it’s clear that we all need to take action as soon as possible. That’s why it’s important that we all do our bit to reduce our own personal carbon footprint. There are many ways to do this, from recycling to using our cars less, but we can also help by drinking organic sparkling wines rather than those grown with the help of pesticides.

The lack of pesticides itself helps the environment the grapes are produced in, but many organic wine producers are also at the heart of many green initiatives. Take a look at the label, or at the relevant website and you’re likely to find that the grower is committed to a carbon neutral policy, or that they use solar power in their vineyards. Remember, when you buy wine from a carbon neutral provider, you’re reducing your own carbon footprint too.

5. It Tastes Great

Let’s face it, one of the primary reasons that we and so many others drink sparkling wine is that it tastes great. Its uniquely satisfying body makes it the perfect accompaniment to any meal, or a fine aperitif. Thankfully, the organic process used to produce these greener sparkling wines does not detract from the taste of the wine in any way and indeed many people report that they find organic sparkling wines of all varieties to linger even longer on the palette and to provide even more satisfaction.

These five areas are all positive reasons why organic sparkling wine is a smart choice: it’s great for the environment, low in sulfites, high in antioxidants and polyphenols, vegetarian and vegan friendly, and it still tastes exceptionally good. The downside to organic wines of any kind is that they typically don’t last as long in storage, but that’s because they contain less preservatives and artificial stabilisers. With sparkling wine as good as this, in taste and its green credentials, it’s unlikely to stay in the cellar long anyway, so it’s likely that organic bubbly and wine will become even more popular in the years ahead.
