Natural wines is a broad term that does not clearly describe how the wine has been produced nor does it have a clear definition from a government body. To enhance our transparency we have chosen not to use this term but we prefer to describe our wines with greater precision and finesse. Most of our producers use these methods: Organic or Biodynamic - Hand-harvesting - Fermentation takes place under the action of indigenous yeast - No use of chemicals - Sulfites as low as possible or none.
Our team operates with honesty and transparency to build a relation on knowledge and trust - with you, our customer."
