Organic Alcohol

In addition to the USDA organic requirements, alcoholic beverages must meet the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) regulations, including sulfite labeling requirements.

Any use of added sulfites means that the wine is only eligible for the “made with” labeling category and may not use the USDA organic seal.

Please note that sulfites may only be added to wine “made with” organic grapes; wine labeled as “made with” other organic fruit (e.g., apples) may not contain added sulfites.

Organic alcohol labels must be reviewed by a certifying agent and the TTB.
