Why Natural Wine?

  • Thanks to low-intervention growing and processing techniques, these wines beautifully express the landscapes in which they’re grown—so each sip conveys the taste, aroma, and spirit of some of the best places on earth
  • Grapes are grown with regenerative practices that restore rather than deplete local ecosystems
    • No herbicides or pesticides: On some farms, sheep graze down the weeds; on others, waterfowl handle pest control and provide fertilizer
    • Native plants grow between rows to prevent erosion, draw down carbon and improve soil health
  • Fermentation, aging and bottling:
    • No filtration
    • Minimal or no added sulfites
    • No animal-based clarifying agents; our wine is vegan
    • Naturally occurring, indigenous yeasts—rather than lab-grown varieties—drive fermentation
  • Flavors are wild, intense, unconventional
