What is Natural Wine?
The difference between artisan wine and conventional wine is that the latter is mass produced and chemically manipulated to give a safe and predictable result. The differences of place, soil and of grape variety are secondary because the differences are damaged or destroyed by industrialised grape farming and winemaking techniques in favour of predictability and volume of production. The wines are made using chemical fertilisers, toxic pesticides and mechanical crop thinning in the vineyard and high amounts of additives and preservatives like sulfites are used during vinification. Conventional wine is bland and uninteresting, regardless of where it’s from and regardless of the grape variety from which it is made.
Artisan wine is hand crafted, made by small wineries who produce limited quantities of wine in order to keep a high level of quality. The work is done in a sustainable way respecting the nature. The wines are made using natural fertilisers in the vineyard, the grapes are handpicked, native yeast and a low amounts of additives or none are used during the vinification.
The Artisan wineries which we have selected in our portfolio thus produce fine, natural, organic or biodynamic wine with minimal intervention both in the vineyard and the cellar. Their wines are authentic, they taste of the grapes from which they are made and are an honest expression of their terroir.
We always thought from the deepest of our hearts the only possible wine was natural wine. On the other hand, wine must be pleasure, and everything begins and ends with taste. And we should defend ourselves from all those trojan horses out there trying to implant an ersatz taste in our brain.
We curate and handpick every wine ourselves to create a portfolio to be proud of. We visit each and every winery, we tour the vineyards, we see the vines, we dirty our boots walking in the vineyards, we feel the soil, we visit the cellars and we taste the wines with the producers, not only those already in bottles but also the new vintages directly from the barrels.
Every year is different, and so will the vintages of the wines we select be different every year. This is because the wineries we work with produce their wines in natural fashion and don’t add any chemicals that will round the taste. They are true Artisans.
