Natural Wine

Colloquial term (also Artisan Wine, Naked Wine, Vin Nature or Natural Wine, which is not permitted under wine law) for wines produced in a certain way that belong to the group of alternative wines. This also includes raw wine and orange wine. Internationally, "Natural Wines" are the thematic umbrella term under which "Raw Wines" can also be classified. The sparkling products are called Pétillant Naturel or Pét Nat. The beginnings of the natural wine movement lie in France in the 1980s. The two winemakers Jules Chauvet (1907-1989) and Jacques Néauport are considered the pioneers. They began to experiment with how to make wine without using antioxidants and sulphur and with as little intervention as possible in the cellar
