Natural wine has no uniform definition. It is a general term used to describe artisanal wine made using organically and/or biodynamically grown hand-picked grapes which are vinified with little or no intervention. Winemakers often rely on indigenous yeast to catalyse natural fermentation, avoiding the use of any chemicals, additives or sulphites.

The result is wine which is alive, energetic, vibrant and unexpected – a welcomed contrast to the industrial practices of the wine industry.

Tasting Notes
A medium-bodied skin contact white, this is a blend of 150 year-old vine Merweh from the Qannboubine Valley and young Sauvignon Blanc from the Bekaa Valley. Fresh, lively, mildly aromatic, and with a medium tannic structure, this is a diverse and food-friendly wine. Pair with a Lebanese mezze spread.
