What is a natural wine?
In the West (and more often in Bulgaria, too), so-called "natural wine" is very popular: a category that is slightly difficult to define, referring to ethics rather than a label. One of the best descriptions of the term "natural wine" is "wine to which nothing has been added and nothing has been taken away from." Natural wine is largely a philosophical concept based on categories such as respect for the terroir, respect for Nature (using appropriate organic or biodynamic preparations in the vineyard and cellar), minimalist approach to vinification (in terms of minimizing or complete exclusion of biotech methods and means in the making of wine) and so on. Some of the European organizations of natural winemakers such as the French S.A.I.N.S. completely exclude additives to wine, including sulphites; others such as the Italian VinNatur, allow only the use of sulphites in minimal doses, excluding anything else, even yeasts. The philosophy behind natural wine is called "savoir non faire" - knowing how to minimize human and technological intervention in both wine growing and making, and treating it in the most gentle, harmless way for it to be the most genuine, authentic related to the energy of its terroir.
