NATURAL WINE

Natural wine is the romantic fantasy of how we wish all wine was made. It uses no chemical growing or plowing solutions, only the ripe
grapes are hand picked, there are very low to no added sulfites, and only indigenous yeasts are used. Natural wine has no additives of any kind and isn’t filtered or fined.

ORANGE WINE

Orange wine was invented in the Republic of Georgia thousands of years ago and brought to the rest of the world by 2 italians Gravner and Radikon who wanted to explore this wine making style about 40 years ago. Today there are around 1000 wine producers/wineries that make some orange wine along with other styles they are producing. Orange wine is made from white grapes that macerate on the skins, this can be done for a couple of hours or up to one year.
