Preview: Organic & Natural Wine – What’s it all about?

So, March is here and it is time to look closer at organic, biodynamic, and natural wines at the Italian Food, Wine, and Travel group. They are three types, or categories, of wine that have many things in common but there are also differences between them. Which are the common denominators? Natural is the buzzword right now. But does a natural wine need to be organic or biodynamic?

There are different definitions according to different associations, for example. Such as

  • Vin Natur
  • Vini Veri
  • Vignaioli Artigiani Naturali
  • Raw Wine

…and, others.

Let us find more during this month’s theme.
