  • Natural Wines in London – Holborn

    Thursday, 13th June


    So, what’s ‘natural wine’? The Wikipedia definition is ‘wine made with minimal chemical and technological intervention, both in growing grapes and making them into wine’.

    Some typical traits of natural wine are:-

    Made from organically or biodynamically grown grapes (with or without certification)
    Dry Farmed and Hand Picked
    No Added Sugars
    No Foreign Yeasts or Bacteria
    No Adjustments for Acidity
    No Additives for Colour, Minerality or Texture
    No External Flavours
    Minimal Fining and Filtration

    Some Natural wines have no added sulphites, which makes them perfect for those who want to enjoy wine but may suffer from sulphite intolerance. Those that do add sulphites tend to use very low amounts.

    With more and more natural wine coming on to the market in the UK, we thought it was time we organised a tasting of this new genre for you.
