That is natural wine.
Not to bring the party vibe down, but did you know the wine you're serving may have more than 60 different additives? Some of these can include, but are not limited to, egg whites, milk products, fish bladders, gelatin, and other squeamish animal parts.
But how many of you really know what is in your favorite glass of wine? Most people assume wine is just made from grapes, but the reality is that that's hardly the case.
Unless, of course, you opt for a small-but-growing segment of wine that is committed to producing what we would consider to be pure wine.
"Natural wine is a bit of a broad categorization that means different things to different folk," . "Some people think that natural wines must be organic. Others assume it should be biodynamic. And further, there are those that fall into the pure 'Double-Zero' camp: zero chemical additives, zero parts removed."
All are right in their own ways, but the very baseline requirements for any natural wine is above-board agricultural practices, native-yeast fermentation, and no additives beyond minimal sulfuring.
