Natural wines are a group of wines that were farmed and made with as little human intervention as possible. Think of it as the stark opposition and defiance to anti-agricorporation that wine industry has turned to.
New York Times wine critic Eric Asimov defines it as ““wines that are made with an absolute minimum of manipulation: grapes grown organically or in rough approximation, then simply set forth along an unforced path of fermentation into wine, with nothing added and nothing taken away.” All this means is that you will get a lot more flavors that might have been “edited” out previously by different methods of farming or winemaking. Think of natural wines as the wine it used to be made, before all the Instagram like filters were applied to present the wines with a certain “look.”
We at Kogod Liquors believe that there is room for everyone’s palate and cellars for natural wines. Some are funky, yes. However, a bulk of natural wines just taste better.
