The rise of bio-dynamic and raw wines

The rise of bio-dynamic and raw wines

It goes by many names: natural, raw, bio-dynamic, organic, low-intervention or even naked wine, but however you want to name it, wine in its purest form has never been more popular. The style first originated in rural France, but it is now on wine lists pretty much everywhere and gaining a very enthusiastic following. For some, it’s flavour is unappealing and considered to be no more than a foodie fad. But, natural wine, simply put, is the producer’s way of turning the tides, back to traditional processes, styles and techniques. Not only is natural wine produced more sustainably, but it’s usually done without herbicide, pesticides, lab-grown yeast, added sugar or acid (beyond what’s needed to kick-start the production of alcohol), and kept entirely free of additives that preserve colour, smell and viscosity. There are  now plenty of wonderful 'raw' pinot noirs, chardonnays and even rosés out there that go down well on their own and pair very nicely with food.  We have selected some of our favourites to share with you.
