Under the new USDA National Organic Program, Frey wines are Organic Wines because they are made from certified organic grapes and contain no additives, such as sulfites or tartaric acid. Wineries that use organic grapes, but add sulfites or other additives can only be labeled “Made with organically grown grapes.” Many foods, including wine, may contain small amounts of naturally occurring sulfites. For example, an egg tested at an independent wine laboratory showed 6 ppm total sulfites. Testing has shown that naturally occurring sulfites are present in some of Frey’s wines in small amounts, but in some cases no sulfites were detected. Red wines and older white wines contain the lowest levels of naturally occurring sulfites (that is, none detected or under 5 ppm), while young white wines may occasionally show levels from 5 to 15 ppm. Although the legal limit in wine is 350 ppm, most wines with added sulfites contain less, generally 25-150 ppm. According to federal law, if a wine contains 10 ppm or more of total sulfites, the label must state “contains sulfites”. Also, no animal products are used in the making of Frey Wines, such as egg whites, gelatin, or dairy-derived substances, which is good news for vegans. So, are these wines worthy? Come in and judge for yourself.
