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.

  • Went on for 5-10 days. Juice was then racked off, and was allowed to settle over winter.

  • Organic honey from their own bees was added to restart fermentation in spring 

  • No SO2 added.
