FAQ

1. What is natural wine?

Natural wine is wine made from grapes grown organically or biodynamically, without the use of synthetic chemicals or additives in the vineyard. During the winemaking process, minimal intervention techniques are used, allowing the grapes to ferment with their natural yeasts and preserving the wine's unique flavors and characteristics.

2. How long can I keep natural wine if opened or not opened?

Natural wine, like conventional wine, can be kept for varying durations depending on factors such as the specific wine, storage conditions, and personal preference. Generally, natural wines can be enjoyed within a few days to a week after opening if stored properly in a cool, dark place with a cork or stopper to seal the bottle.

3. Can natural wine be aged?

While some natural wines are suitable for aging, not all are intended for long-term aging. The aging potential depends on factors like grape variety, winemaking techniques, and storage conditions. Consult with our wine experts or check individual wine labels for aging recommendations.

4. Can natural wine help your headache?

Natural wines, free from additives and sulfites, are often considered gentler on the body and less likely to cause headaches or adverse reactions compared to conventional wines. However, individual reactions vary, and moderation is key when enjoying alcoholic beverages.
