For Losito e Guarini Organic and Vegan wines represent the new goal in the journey undertook many years ago for what concerns productions that are attentive towards ethical and healthful aspects. It is important to marry a philosophy of management and production that respects the environment and that makes sure to satisfy the necessities of those consumers who, when choosing a product, pay close attention to content guarantees and wine production methods. Moreover, we try to make sure that wine on the table represents a form of pleasure also for those people who suffer from specific health issues.
Since many years we have adopted an “allergen free” management policy for what concerns allergens and food intolerances. We have therefor eliminated many allergens, such as:
Eggs and eggs based products, including egg lysozyme;
fish and fish based products;
soy and soy based products;
milk and milk based products.
The Vegan and Organic choice and ethics are not simply a trend but represent many positive health improvements.
CAMPAIGN FINANCED ACCORDING TO REG. EU No. 1308/2013
Starting from 2007 the EU made the use of the common organic symbol (the green flag with a leaf made out of the European stars) compulsory for all those products, produced within the territory on the Union, that contain at least 95% organic ingredients. Next to the symbol the producer has to specify the code of the Control Body and the actual origin (EU / non EU) of the ingredients used for the product.
The organic norms set very specific rules for the preparation of vegetal and animal products, aimed at reducing the use of additives, aromas and other non-organic ingredients with mainly sensory and technological functions. The goal is to obtain a product that is higher in quality but has a lower impact on the environment. For the production of wine only the use of sulphite is allowed and it’s always prohibited the use of substances deriving or obtained from GMO’s, also for the few conventional allowed ingredients. Organic productions have to happened granting processing that are separate in time (thanks to dedicates lines) or space. If the latter, the line has to be properly cleaned before the organic production can start. The recordings have to allow a correct identification and reporting of entry and exit workflows of raw materials and finished products
