Designation for wines produced in a certain way, which belong to the group of so-called alternative wines. This also includes natural wine and orange wine. Internationally, "Natural Wines" are the thematic umbrella term under which "Raw Wines" can also be classified. However, "Natural Wines" do not automatically have to be "Raw Wines", as there are many international initiatives and groups that follow their own path within "Natural Wines". However, there are no EU-wide regulations for all these terms, but there are country-specific regulations in some countries. The term Raw Wine goes back to the ideas of the French wine critic Isabelle Legeron (MW), which she described in her first book "Natural Wine: An Introduction to Naturally Produced and Biodynamic Wines".
There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.Sigi Hiss
