Director of Tasting Christian Wolf: ‘Over the past ten years, MUNDUS VINI BIOFACH has established itself as the gold standard for rating certified organic wines. This year, we were once again impressed by the improved quality and variety in the selection of organic wines. Alongside organic wines from traditional origins and classic grape varieties, an especially positive development is being witnessed in terms of grape varieties cultivated especially for organic viticulture, which can better meet the plant protection challenges of organic cultivation.’
