What is 'natural' wine?

 Natural Wine is farmed organically (biodynamically, using permaculture or the like) and made (or rather transformed) without adding or removing anything in the cellar. No additives or processing aids are used, and ‘intervention’ in the naturally occurring fermentation process is kept to a minimum. As such neither fining nor (tight) filtration are used. The result is a living wine – wholesome and full of naturally occurring microbiology.

-- Isabelle Legeron MW, 

Natural wine is made with minimal intervention, meaning there are minimal added sulphites and absolutely no chemical additives. The only yeasts used in the winemaking process are those that naturally occur on the grapes. The result is wine which is lively and delicious, and we think it tastes much better than more commercially-produced wines.

Natural wines are made with sustainable farming practices, and are very often organic or biodynamic as well, but what makes a wine "natural" is that nothing is added to the grapes or juice during the winemaking process. Most commercially-produced wines, like those found in supermarkets, contain chemical additives to alter wine's flavour, aroma and appearance. Not only do wines made without these additives taste amazing, they are also affordable.

Most wine producing regions make natural wine, and it is available in red, white, rose, sparkling and even orange varieties, so there is something to suit all tastes. If you're interested in trying natural wines, we hope you'll stop by our farmer's market stalls for a free sample and a bit of chat - it would make our day!  Otherwise, take a look at our current stock on here and you can order some bottles.

Do natural wines contain sulphur?
Most wines contain naturally occurring sulphur. Natural winemakers add no or as little sulphur as possible to their wines, meaning the overall context is far lower than commercially produced wines. 

What is biodynamic wine?
Many natural winemakers follow biodynamic farming practices. You can read more about it here.

Is the term natural wine regulated or certified?
There is no certification of regulation body for natural wine , but RAW WINE does offer a Charter of Quality which helps distinguish a natural wine.
