The use of sulfites is a necessary step in the winemaking process. Because sulfites are antioxidants and anti-microbial, winemakers use them to help prevent bacterial growth and wine spoilage.
The use of sulfites in wines has been around since ancient times, when candles would be burned inside oak barrels before wines would be sealed for aging. Sulfites release sulphur dioxide – the active component in the preservation process.
Oen Drop offers you the opportunity to remove those sulfites - right before you enjoy your wine.
