Why Act Natural?

"I have this perpetual debate with myself. 'What is a Natural Wine?'

To me it starts in the vineyard. Grapes are farmed making it UnNatural, but Organic & Sustainable practices gets you close. These grapes were farmed Sustainably so that's a win!!

The winemaking should be hands off. Nothing should be added. The grapes spent 2 days on skins, moved only when it had to. I did add sulphur twice to keep her safe but $#!t happens. Nothing else added.

Is it a Natural Wine? I don't know, but this wine Acts Natural!"

- Lee Baker, Winemaker
