Made fromorganic agriculture (AB), the natural wine aims to rediscover the expression of a terroir, far from formatted and conventional practices. By rejecting the use of chemicals, the winemaker By rejecting the use of chemical products, the "natural" wine maker, who is sensitive to the respect of his environment, produces a living and free wine. Natural wines, natural wines, organic wines...whatever the name, the main principles are there: the will for all the selected winegrowers to propose wines in an organic spirit or even in biodynamics.

WHAT ARE THE SPECIFICITIES OF 'NATURAL' WINE COMPARED TO ORGANIC OR BIODIESEL WINES?
Regulated by European specifications, it guarantees that no chemicals (including herbicides) have been used to treat the vines. This means that the vines have to be worked mechanically. For fertilization, only natural products are authorized.
Two certification bodies, Demeter and Biodyvin, require wines to be organically farmed. Biodynamics is based on the writings of Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925). Biodynamic preparations promote biodiversity in the vineyard. The lunar calendar, the stars and their movements are also important to them.
A "vin nature" is a wine made as naturally as possible: manual harvesting, indigenous yeasts specific to the grapes and their environment, no chaptalization, no acidification, little or no use of SO2... the winemaker intervenes as little as possible, accompanying his wine. Launched in 2019 to clarify this approach, the "Syndicat de défense des Vins Nature'l' is a private organization that has drawn up a charter defining vin nature. It offers a certifying label, the "Vin Méthode Nature", officially validated by the fraud services (DGCCRF) in March 2020. You can find its logo on the bottles concerned.
