SOLD OUT- Natural Wines Roundtable


The term natural wine is somewhat ambiguous and there are disagreements between fans of the wines as to what exactly constitutes a natural wine. One popular phrase is the idea that "nothing is added and nothing is taken away."
Sample a selection of on-trend natural wines and join the discussion:

  • How do we define Natural?
  • Sustainable vs. Organic vs. Biodynamic vs. Minimal Intervention vs. Natural vs. Orange
  • The Sulfur question
  • What should you be looking for in a Natural Producer?
  • What does it take to produce great Natural wines?
  • What are the best sources to learn more?
