Sulfite-Free/No Sulfites Added
Sulfites are a preservative that has been used in wine in some form dating back to Roman times. Depending on the production method, style and the color of the wine, sulfites range from no-added sulphur (10-40 Parts Per Million) to about 350 PPM. In comparison to many foods and even commercial brand wines, many dry red wines have significantly less added sulphites, around 50 PPM whereas French Fries can contain more than 1,800 PPM and Dried Fruit over 3,500 PPM.. Sulphur is a growing concern among humans as a cause of health problems mainly because of its prevalence in processed foods. The amount of sulfites contained in wine are generally not a health concern.
