Terra Organica: Why You Should Switch To Organic Wine This Autumn

Terra Organica might be the best-kept secret in the organic wine world. For over 15 years, they have been retailing organic and vegan-friendly wines, from producers they know and trust, at exceptional quality and affordable prices.

Many of these producers are family-run or independent vineyards, who have been honing and developing their wines for decades, without pesticides or sulphates, using biodiversity to thrive (and the occasional sheep to keep the weeds in check).

Grapes grown without artificial chemicals are as nature intended. Grapes are tended by hand, harvested at absolute peak ripeness and bring all their sun-drenched flavour straight to the glass. Organic growing is harder and riskier, but the result tastes beautiful.

Co-Founder and wine expert Lindsay Talas says: "Drinking organic wine isn't going to save the planet alone, but if we switch to organic wines and food it will help.

Terra Organica wines are Planet Friendly and vegan friendly, but our producers go even further. For instance, the Zuccardi family in Argentina who we work with to create our Terra Organica Malbec and Terra Organica Malbec Rosé produce their own compost and humus with the help of their wormery. They plant winter grass in between the rows of vines to keep the weeds at bay and to fix nitrogen in the soil. They also make their own fuel for boilers and recycle and reuse all the water from the winery. Having their own vine nursery means they are rearing the next generation of organic vines too, rather than flying them in. For them, farming sustainably isn't just about the land, it is also about the community. Julia Zuccardi says "we are at the service of the community of which we are part".

Over the last 15+ years, I have been visiting them, I have seen how they nurture, cherish and enrich their local community every bit as much as they do their vines."

Terra Organica is proud to be a member of 1% for the Planet. Their belief is that companies who profit from resources they take from the earth, should protect those resources.

About Terra Organica

After decades leading wine buying and development for major supermarkets, we realised there was still a lack of affordable, good quality organic wine on the shelves. Yes, it could be found but it was often disappointingly poor in quality, or beyond the reach of most pockets. No-one was single-mindedly searching out the best organic wines from around the world for people to enjoy.

So, fifteen years ago, we launched Terra Organica to do just that. Today, our mission is the same. We scour the globe to find producers who share our passion for organic growing and winemaking, showcasing them in our exclusive Terra Organica range. These are usually independent wineries or family run businesses with generations of experience and winemakers who understand how to work with nature, not against it.

The result is a boutique range of top quality organic wines that don’t cost the earth.

Sometimes, it feels like wine drinkers are in a secret club. Grape varieties, terroir, vintages … it’s easy to feel wrong-footed. At Terra Organica, we do this work for you. Rest assured that every single bottle in our range meets our stringent quality and ethical standards.

Here’s what sets our producers apart.

NO GIMMICKS Our producers haven’t jumped on the organic bandwagon, they have been growing organically for years. From a family run estate in the heart of Rioja to the first Argentinian winery to plant organic, we champion these passionate pioneers who care about how their wine is produced.

NO COMPROMISE Just as they will not compromise on quality, so our growers will not compromise on sustainability either. From funding community projects to investing in solar power and working with suppliers on reducing glass weight, Terra Organica is proud to see the incredible work our producers are doing to make a difference to the industry, and the world.

NO SHORTCUTS Wine is made to be enjoyed. That’s why we visit our growers (we don’t work with anyone we’ve not met), walk in the vineyards, taste the grapes, work collaboratively to achieve the perfect finished product. When you pour a Terra Organica wine, you know it’s been lovingly made by people who put quality first, not mass-market volume.
