Have you been bit with the natural wine bug? Fantastic, you have come to the right spot. But are you also thoroughly confused by what natural wine means? Are your social media accounts infiltrated by Silicon Valley natural wine start ups which claim miraculous health benefits such as no hangovers, headaches, or relationship issues; or completely absurd and irrelevant claims like KETO FRIENDLY, PALO FRIENDLY, VEGAN FRIENDLY; will make you lose weight, acne, baldness and annoying people in your life? Okay, we made the last ones up, but reading the likes of some of these natural wine clubs, these claims aren't so far fetched.
The truth is, natural wine is awesome but will not give you eternal life. A lesser hangover perhaps and definitely fewer side affects if wine causes you health issues to begin with.
Natural wine has many definitions, but in short, we like to refer to them as wines with nothing added, coming from healthy grapes or as natural wine icon Franck Cornelissen says" grapes transformed without any corrections." These are living wines with the specific science of non-interventionism directly correlated to the terroir. These are wines that make you live, breathe, think and feel the place where they are from and hopefully transcend your sense of time and space.
Not all natural wines taste like kombucha or smell like post Phish concert kimchi grilled cheese but some of them can be quite out there with loads of funky goodness floating inside. Yet, we find most of them are nowhere this stereotype and even though the unfilteredness is present in all of them, this can vary from massive flotation to somewhat opaque. Equally, natural wine can range from super easy going to incredibly weird and diverse. Point being: try a bunch and see which ones are your speed!
At Some Good Wine, we strive to have one of the largest and most diverse selection of natural wines out there. Our first criteria is awesomeness! We look for producers we know and love and work with distributors whose methods and philosophy we respect. Every one of our natural wines we have tried and selected by hand. Our descriptions show that and if you need more information, feel free to call or email with questions.
