Dario Prinčič | Bianco Sivi
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.

100% Pinot Grigio.
Dark pink-amber colour, with exotic and ripe fruits, mutating all the time. Apricot skin, mandarin and ginger surge across the tongue and there's a touch of astringency to remind you of the original grape. Not just a great Pinot Grigio, a wine reeking (in the classiest sense) of individuality.
Mild Mediterranean climate throughout the year.
