Org de Rac is an organic wine estate run to strict standards. Every aspect in the production of their wines, from planting and harvesting to bottling and labelling, reflects the estate’s commitment to true sustainability and harmony with nature.
Grapes are grown in previously untouched, healthy soil, carefully nurtured with natural compost and organic nutrients.
All picking and sorting is done by hand. This secures jobs for the community, and the estate also offers development and training to staff to empower them in organic farming practices.
The winemaking process adheres to strict organic guidelines. Only half the sulphur content of conventional wine is allowed and no other chemical additives are used at all. Bottling and labelling are done under the same roof.
Org de Rac is now expanding its product offering to include herbs and olives. Lavender and rosemary were planted in April 2009 and June 2010, and estate-distilled aromatherapy oils are on the cards for the future. Olive trees were planted in 2008 and 2010, and the farm is looking forward to harvesting its Frontoio and Chinos in 2013 and its Calamatas the following year.
