New Organic Wines ‘Hit the Floor’ @TGTG.

Happy February everyone. After a #dryginuary here’s some surprising news!

I’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to promote ‘natural’ wines at The Grape to Glass, and that time is now!

Wines that are expressive of their homeland; wines made by hand with minimal chemical intervention; and where the winemaking shows maximum respect for the environment.

There’s been a couple of natural wines in stock since we opened in October 2016, but this year brings many more to the ever expanding range.

I believe in the importance of ‘terroir’, indigenous grapes, diversity and organic viticulture. Above all, wines of character and distinction!!!!
I have always championed small, independent winemakers, the hardy souls who put their love and life’s work into producing outstanding somewhat different wines that deliver a unique and inspiring product.
That goes for most of the range, but there are some real gems in this wine world that must be shown, exhibited, and tried!

There’s a buzz around natural wines at the moment, which isn’t surprising given similar movements in the current ‘food world’. Natural wine at its most basic is fermented grape juice with nothing added or nothing taken away.

There are about 400 natural wine producers in France alone so it’s reported, but I’ve have found some stellar examples from Italy, Spain, and Australia which are currently in stock.

The natural wine movement is a relatively new phenomenon.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that natural wines induce fewer side effects, I certainly see a difference, but it may differ for others. I am in no way suggesting you’ll “never get a hang-over” but… remember this, natural wines themselves have existed since time immemorial.

When wine was first made 8,000 years ago, it was not made using packets of yeasts, vitamins, enzymes, reverse osmosis, cryoextraction or powdered tannins – (are you still with me?), just some of the many additives and processes used in winemaking worldwide as production and interest expands in the wine world.

The wines of these bygone days before ‘world wine domination’ were always natural; they were made from crushed grapes that fermented into wine, Simples!

I am a total convert and happy to dabble into ‘expect something different’, getting under the skin of the grape.

Fine, natural wines are vibrant and alive, and show excitingly diverse characteristics that are full of emotion, and utmost, PERSONALITY!!!!!!

Enough said, you’re just going to have to pop in and have a look at what’s new #naturally 🙂

Here’s a sneak peek, with some cool labels………. Iechyd da!
