Do you know what's in your wine? Wine-making has become ever-more unnatural, from the use of blanket crop-spraying in vineyards, to the over-use of sulfites and additives in the cellar, but luckily there is another way, as Isabelle Legeron MW explains. Isabelle, who campaigns for natural wine around the world, reveals why the finest, most authentic wines are those made naturally. While currently not regulated by an official definition, natural wines are made from sustainably farmed, organic (or biodynamic) grapes, with nothing removed or added during winemaking, bar at most a dash of sulfites. It is good old-fashioned grape juice fermented into wine just as nature intended. If you care about what's in your glass, want to explore unique flavors, or are keen to support small-scale producers, then you need to know more about natural wine, and where to find it. This first consumer guide to natural wine explains the processes involved, introduces you to some of the growers, and gives you an introduction to over 140 of the best wines for you to try.
