Natural wine is a wine that is made in the most natural way possible. Vin Nature or Vin Natural wines are often organic or even biodynamic. However, this is not the case in all cases. The big difference between Vin Nature wines and conventional wines is made in the wine cellar.
A Vin Nature farmer tries to make his wines with as few additions as possible, so no enzymes, no acids and no sulfites (at most a little bit, which is added just before bottling). The fermentation takes place with natural yeast and malolactic fermentation, with only natural bacteria. The wine must not be filtered or clarified.
A Vin Nature can be great, but is also vulnerable due to the lack of sulfites in the wine. There is no official legislation for the term Vin Nature. It is the farmers themselves who agree on the rules and respect them. It is expected that in the coming years there will be European legislation regarding Vin Nature wines.
