The term Natural Wines refers to wines that have been made in a 'hands-off' approach to winemaking - simply referring to the winemakers letting the wine ferment naturally. This may sound silly and you are thinking, 'well isn't all winemaking like that?', and you'd be mostly right. Winemakers have the ability to correct their wines if the vintage wasn't that great by adding in acidity, sugar for sweetness, tannins for structure and colour and sulphites for preservatives. Natural wines are those that are made completely free of any of those additives. This helps to create wines that are the "true representation of the grape or vineyard in question."
