Sulphur dioxide (preservative 220) is a compound that is commonly used in nearly all winemaking. It is a natural product and has been added to wine since Roman times. We add it to preserve the natural colour and flavour in our wine as well as protecting the wines from oxidation which allows them to age beautifully over time.
We know some people are sensitive to sulphur so we endeavour to minimise the amount of sulphur in our wines. Certified organic table wines must have less than 150 mg/litre. Our wines typically contain between 50 to 95 mg/litre sulphur dioxide. As a result our wines are often sought after by people who find that they can suffer headaches from consuming other wine.
