Our Natural Wine Guide

Although there is no legal definition of how a natural wine is made, there are a few principles that consistently abide to the basic idea that wine should be made in the vineyard, not the cellar: no added chemicals, no added sulfites (or just the bare minimal amount), no temperature control during fermentation, no added yeast, no fining or filtration, and no pesticides or herbicides in the vineyard.

Black soil of lively volcanos, with thermal muds and lava flows and vines and fruit trees and capers and all the possible aromatic herbs.  And quietness (at least in June) and the color of water that looks like a beautiful impressionist painting.

Our Barolo Wine Guide

True, it is indeed a dry red wine and it does come from a little town called Barolo, in the northern Piedmont region of Italy. However, there is so much more to a Barolo than it just being a red wine, as it did not get its nickname “the King of Italian wines” for nothing (but be careful not to mention that to some of the proud Brunello producers in Montalcino)!
