Ecovin is an association of winegrowers in Germany whose nearly 200 members with vineyards of 1,000 hectares are practicing organic viticulture and organic winemaking according to the association's guidelines - about 1 % of viticulturists in Germany. The Ecovin certification covers the whole process of wine-making, comprising grape-growing in the vineyard and wine making in the cellar, Schiller-Wine reports. The Ecovin label is a wine-specific logo, which is still used widely as it significantly exceeds the requirements of the EU regulations.
