The words "wine created from organic grapes" were added to Erbaluna bottle labels, along with the name of the certifying authority for agricultural techniques in accordance with EC Reg. 2092/91.
Erbaluna were regarded as "organic pioneers" during those years, together with a small group of Piedmontese and Tuscan winemakers with whom they shared know- how, aims, and aspirations.
EC Regulations 834/07 and 889/08 have been added to and amended the legislation on the issue over time.
The Standing Committee on Organic Farming (SCOF) of the European Union passed Regulation 203/12 on organic winemaking on February 8, 2012. It went into effect on August 1, 2012, and it regulates organic winemaking practises and oenological aids, among other things.
