'The natural wine world has never been culturally static, nor has it been about a grouping of growers making wines according to a single manifesto; it reflects a constant wild ferment of traditional approaches and fresh ideas.'

- Doug Wregg, of pioneering 'Natural Wine' importer Les Caves de Pyrene

The phrase 'Natural' wine gets thrown around a lot these days, and sometimes the core values of the movement get lost in the fray. For us, natural wine is made in the vineyard; utilising organic or biodynamic growing practices, and using as little human intervention as possible.

'Natural' wines offer honest, pure expressions of their natural environment, through the careful decisions a winemaker takes to get them into the bottle. The world of 'natural wine' is an exciting place, full of pioneering producers unearthing the beauty of their environment.

Discover some of our favourite 'Natural' wines in this delicious selection, which includes a fantastic Pet Nat and Orange wine.

In 'A Natural Selection':
 
1 x 2020 'Barbabolla' Bianco Frizzante, Marco Barba, Veneto, Italy

Biodynamic / Vegan


Trebbiano and Garganega are two grape varieties that often fly under the radar, yet in the hands of the right winemaker, they can produce delicious, distinctive wines. This couldn't be more true for the 'Barbabolla'. This is a zippy, frothy, citrusy fizz that demands a second glass (or three!). Made using a natural sparkling method known as 'Pet Nat', where the wine is bottled during natural fermentation creating a lively, sparkling palate.


1 x 2020 'Naranjo', González Bastías, Maule Valley, Chile

Biodynamic / Vegan / Orange


A vibrant orange wine from the heart of the Maule Valley, Chile. Made from a blend of Torontel, Moscatel, and País, the fruit is macerated with skins for 60 days in the traditional style of this region. Despite its relatively long skin-contact, this wine exhibits wonderful finesse in its flavour and structure. The nose is aromatic, with delicate notes of peach and white flowers. The palate is light and fresh, with a well-balanced texture – body without too much grip. A killer pairing with spicy food, sweet and sour dishes, and for the bolder foodies among us, desserts.

1 x 2020 'Potato Land' Gruner Veltliner, Matthias Warnung, Kamptal, Austria

Organic / Vegan


This is a brilliant modern twist on the classic Austrian white grape Gruner Veltliner. Made with a touch of skin contact, it has a gorgeous orange hue and a bit more weight on the palate than you'd usually expect from this variety. We've classified this as an 'orange wine', but it's really somewhere between white and orange; crisp, bright and fragrant with notes of citrus and stone fruits, and a nice grippy finish from those skins. Delicious!

 
1 x 2016 'Nuance de Pinot', Domaine MANN, Alsace, France

Biodynamic / Vegan


A delicious blend of both Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris from Domaine Mann's biodynamic vineyards. Time is key here, with the almost 5 years of bottle age helping the wine develop delicious baked apple and stunning honied notes. This is a round and generous wine with a lifting freshness that perfectly complements its plush fruit. A shining example of how serious Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc can be from Alsace, especially when aged.

 
1 x 2017 'Naked Red', Heinrich, Burgenland, Austria

Biodynamic / Vegan


Naked and unadorned – this is a natural white blend that hides nothing. Based in Burgenland, Heinrich have embraced biodynamics in a big way and their Naked wines are designed to showcase the naked beauty of mother nature. Heinrich describes this wine as “seriously uncomplicated”. This marriage of local varieties – Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent – is light and juicy, with red and black berries and a herbal spiciness on the palate. Confident, delicious Naked wine.

 
1 x 2020 'Thirst' Gamay, Radford Dale, Wellington, South Africa

Organic / Vegan


'Thirst' is aptly named - this is definitely a wine to be drunk when thirsty! Easy, light, mega juicy and oh-so gluggable. Pop a few in the fridge, and chill down, before opening with pizza and lots of good friends. This is a pretty unconventional Gamay, grown in the warm, South African region of Wellington. The vines are wonderfully old and produce grapes of concentration and great quality.
