The philosophy behind winemaking Natural wine does not mean only without the addition of sulphites, it means working according to the ancient winemaking traditions with sulfur and copper in the vineyard, based on the effort of manual labor, an activity that is the least interventionist possibility that the cycles of Nature make winemaking of grape juice as well 'is, without some substances if not their own. The result of all this production philosophy is natural wine, a non-standardized wine that best expresses its identity, its terroir and its most intrinsic causes. Natural wines are much more difficult to produce than wines to which we are traditionally accustomed, because when there is no help from the use of balancing substances and support for winemaking, wine cannot be a way of putting: o it's good or bad. Natural wine was born as the commitment of the natural artisan winemakers to raise their product to the standardization of the taste and identity of the wine and the vineyard which, thanks to the widespread use of chemistry and new technologies, now leads to products with always the same flavors, regardless of the production area or the type of cultivation required.
