Who doesn’t love a good new trend? Today, we’re here to talk about the latest trend in wine: natural wines. In an age when natural beauty products and organic foods are increasingly popular, it only makes sense that the world is beginning to pay attention to what goes into their glass of vino.
What is natural wine, you ask? The definition is a little...complicated. Most people have agreed that the phenomenon began in rural France, but there’s some dispute over what constitutes wine as natural. The basic premise of this is that natural wine is created using very minimal technological or chemical intervention; neither adding nor removing anything while the wine is in the cellar. Sometimes sulfites are added in small quantities, but differently from how they are used in conventional winemaking. Natural wine is typically unfiltered, giving it a cloudy quality.
While we don't claim to be the authority on what makes a natural wine, we have done some research and digging so that you don’t have to. Below is a list of eight natural wines to shop so you can try out the trend. Enjoy! (Responsibly, of course.)
