Natural wine or natural wine has been gaining more and more followers in recent years. At Oé, although we do not produce it, we encourage this practice which has won over many winegrowers , businesses and consumers, concerned about their footprint on the planet. And don't think that it is reserved only for a certain Parisian elite. Lyon is full of good addresses where to find your organic wines and natural wines . Besides, just because summer is over doesn't mean we have to leave our terraces, bars and restaurants. Especially after being deprived of it for so many months. And since at Oé we like to combine business with pleasure, we have concocted a brief overview of the best addresses where you can taste natural wine, whether red, white or rosé, in our good old town of Lyons.
Natural wine, a brief overview
Natural wine is first and foremost a way of thinking, producing and consuming in accordance with respect for the environment. Natural wine is to be differentiated from organic and biodynamic wines . You don't see the nuance, don't panic, we have an article that talks precisely about this subject 👉🏼 here .
What you need to know is that these wines grouped under the label vi nmét hod e nature since 2020, the practices used in organic and biodynamic agriculture have been pushed even further to make organic and biodynamic wines. A natural wine uses only organic and natural fertilizers and farming techniques . The harvest is also done by hand, without industrial processes. The vinification is done with less sulphites than organic wines to approach zero. Wines without added sulfites (besides those from the skin of the grapes) are SAINT wines (without any added inputs or added sulfites).
We often hear it said that natural wine is a niche wine, reserved for “bobo” consumers, that it's a trend, a fad. Nay, my brave ones! This practice has existed since the dawn of time in the agricultural heritage of many cultures. Several thousand years ago, sores were not legion in the Mediterranean plains or in the mountains of the Middle East. Natural wines are above all the result of a production strongly attached to the respect and protection of the soil. It is also a new form of consumption. A consumption that wants to be as close as possible to the terroir and the vine and that is more concerned with the environmental issues linked to our daily practices.
The aromas of natural wine can be very varied, sweet, with the taste of grape juice or very strong and very marked. Natural wine shows itself as it is, without additions, without modifications and without complexes. With its faults and its qualities. It is appreciated as it is, naturally !
