Bottoms Up: Pure Pours at Natural Wines

BY March 24, 2017

With wine lovers on a continual quest for the next greatest pour, even the most respected vintners find themselves unable to resist the allure of science, adding a dash of sulfites here or a sprinkling of yeast or sugar there. But a growing group of wine makers are seeking authenticity: the idea that grapes should be brought into the world—and bottled—as organically as possible. Peter Rizzo, a distributor with more than two decades of experience, has just opened Natural Wines, a shop featuring biodynamic and additive-free blends. He’s as thoughtful with his selections as the growers he’s supporting are, even handwriting tags for each bottle explaining its provenance and production methods.
