About Our Wines

Organic Wines

Simply put, Organic wines are made from organically grown grapes. But there are lots of different certifications for organic products around the world. For instance, organic wine in the United States cannot contain added sulphites, whereas it can in Europe. Most of the growers on the list might farm pretty much organically, even fully, but either aren't certified or are in conversion. The wines on the list are certified organic, or in organic conversion.

Biodynamic Wines

This method predates organic farming. Biodynamic farming was devised in the 1920s by an Austrian called Rudolf Steiner. At its heart is the biodynamic calendar, which regulates what you do, and when. Then there are the special natural composts you stick in cow horns and bury in the ground, in addition to renouncing all manufactured chemicals and fertilizers. This might sound a little unnecessary, but there's undoubtedly substance to it. A visit to a biodynamic vineyard gives you a sense that the vineyard feels in harmony with nature. In the wine world, some of the most passionate, honest winegrowers you'll ever meet farm in this method. Although they don’t shout about it, some of the world’s leading producers follow this method, including Cristal Champagne and Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.

Low Sulphur Wines, Natural Wines

People are increasingly concerned about sulphites in wines, so what are they? Sulphur is a natural product of fermentation, so there's no such thing as 'zero sulphur' wine, but you can have zero added sulphur and lower sulphur wines.

Sulphur dioxide has been added to wine as a preservative since Roman times. Does it give you a headache? Not exactly, but it does badly affect about 1% of the population. There's more added sulphur in dried fruit (about 20 times more) than wine.

However, in our experience, better wines tend to have fewer sulphites. There are fewer sins to cover up. You don't have to go to the extent of barely any added sulphur in order to make good wines, but at that end of the scale there are also some people making amazing, interesting and delicious wines.

You will find a selection of wines with significantly less added sulphur than most, or no added sulphur at all, on our list.

Thousand candles, Yarra Valley, Australia, 2013

This wine is a new Australian idol, wine critic Tyson Stelzer gave it 97 points. It’s at once savoury like a great Wendouree, perfumed like Vosne Romanée and structured with the grip and assuredness of Hermitage. Yet it is emphatically and definitively Australian. The wine leaps out of the glass with violets, exotic spice and black fruits, built around a mouth coating structure of wonderfully fine tannins. The blend of grapes has to be one of the maddest recorded: the best of 100% whole bunch cool climate shiraz (55%), meets 50% whole bunch pinot noir (40%) and a dash of sauvignon blanc (5%)
Bottle £105.00

Abel Mendoza, Guardaviñas Sin Sulfuroso, Rioja, Spain, 2014

Modest and passionate about his vineyards Abel and his wife Maite have been making understated wines in San Vicente since 1988. He wants only to express the fruit and the soil and unlike many Riojans he leaves it more or less at that. He does not want to stamp the wines with any particular style or mark of his own making other than his respect for the very natural quality of the grapes. This is only the second release of this biodynamically farmed (although not certified), sulphur free, limited production wine from a 0.56-hectare parcel planted in 1979.
