Greek Natural Wines
But is it true that there are natural wines? Certainly the definition is not clear but, in order for a wine to enter this category, some basic things should be observed. Natural wines are those with minimal intervention. What does this mean;
The grapes are organically or biodynamically grown or with the philosophy of permaculture (sustainable cultivation). The wine is fermented with its own indigenous yeasts and not commercial ones. Additions and corrections are not allowed, such as e.g. tartaric acid to correct the acidity or fining agents to clear the wine. Processes such as filtering are prohibited. The use of sulfites is either very limited or non-existent.
