Natural Wine

Part anarchy, part time-honoured tradition, natural wines have existed for thousands of years prior to industrialisation. In this bygone era wine was not made using commercial yeasts, vitamins, enzymes, fining with egg/milk/fish , reverse osmosis, cryoextraction, powdered tannins or sulphur dioxide. These wines of the past were made from crushed grapes that fermented into wine, it was as simple as that, and no definition was needed as it was just 'the way it was done'. The techniques were vastly experimental and as varied as the winemakers themselves who worked with whatever opportunities were at their disposal. Today, natural wine is being artfully made, dutifully drank and savoured by those who champion a sustainable livelihood fed by the provisions of nature.
