There's been a lot of talk about sulfites, a naturally occurring preservative, being used in excess by wine makers in America -- but according to wine expert Charles Smith , this isn't the case.

Responsible wine makers only use the amount of sulfites needed, to ensure that the wine is preserved properly, and doesn't get damaged.
