Agents used in winemaking

Is there a natural wine, often also called natural wine, without any additives or aids? Hardly any other question is so often answered incorrectly or is not clear to many consumers that there is no wine that can be vinified completely without additives or auxiliary materials. Such a wine would at least be impaired in colour or taste or, in the worst case, would spoil and become inedible within a short time. There are, of course, wines for which attempts are being made to greatly reduce use, but certain means are indispensable. For example, sulphur, the most important antioxidant, is almost impossible to do without. However, certain substances are forbidden (see also under aromatisation and wine adulteration).
