WINE AS NATURE INTENDED IT.

Taste more than 20 natural wines and enjoy a “farm to table” menu prepared especially for this unique event. The Jaynes Gastropub staff and natural wine experts will be on hand to discuss natural wine, its importance today, and why natural wine plays such an important role on the Jaynes Gastropub wine list.

What is natural wine?

Natural wine is “wine as nature intended it.” Natural wine is wine that expresses the character of the place where it is made, the grapes with which it is made, and the people who make it. The grape is a natural winemaker. When the berry falls to the ground, naturally occurring yeasts on its skin will turn its sugar into alcohol. The skin then acts as a natural and ideal vessel for grape juice to be turned into wine. Natural winemakers employ “minimal intervention” in winemaking in order to allow Mother Nature to perform her miracle.

Above: sometimes natural wine is orange and cloudy instead of white and clear. It can be stinky and we like it that way.

Is natural wine organic?

Grapes for natural wine are often grown using organic, sustainable, and integrated farming practices but natural wine is as much about the work in the cellar as it is about work in the vineyard. Natural winemakers use “ambient” or naturally occurring yeasts for fermentation and they do not “spoof” the wine by artificially raising alcohol levels or concentrating flavors.

movia

Above: natural winemaker Ales Kristiancic of Movia (Slovenia) showed Jon the sediment in his Puro at the Wine and Spirits top 100 tasting in San Francisco last October.

Who is natural wine?

A growing number of like-minded European winemakers, mostly in Italy and France, mostly in the Loire Valley, but also in Spain and Slovenia.
