What areSulfites in wine
Sulfur dioxide, also called “sulphites” are chemical substances used as preservatives in the agri-food sector and, unlike what one might think, much more limitedly in the oenological field in order not to compromise the quality of the wine. They serve to inhibit the action of bacteria that spoil food, but sometimes and in larger quantities they don’t get along with the human body. In fact, these substances can also be harmful to our body. Among the symptoms of the intolerant there are, in the most common cases, headache or stomach pain (not even fully ascertained).
Sulphites are both necessary for the correct conservation of our wines, but the right compromise in quantity in order to protect the wine, but also those who savor its taste.
