Organic grape growers and winemakers are upset at the abuse of the words 'organic' and 'biodynamic' in relation to wine. They are concerned that wine producers are using these descriptions as a tool to sell wine in a market that is increasingly congested and favouring sustainably produced wines over the more conventional. A group of Western Australian winemakers has approached the state's wine industry association with its concerns and asked if anything can be done to stop it.
