The winemakers The Elite Wine Tour partner are fully invested in environmentally friendly practices. These are vital throughout their vineyards and wineries.
They do not rely on scientifically modified yeast, nor do they include additional excess sulphate. They allow nature to take its course.
Natural wine is commonplace across The Loire Valley winegrowing regions.
Many Loire Valley winemakers do not even consider themselves to be groundbreaking, or trend-setting.
They merely make wine the same way they were taught by their predescessors.
Natural wine practices focus on the environment. Responsible winemakers concentrate on the entire ecosystem, surrounding the vineyard as a whole.
The result of good practices throughout the vineyard and winery are many. This approach creates wine of great character, and maintains healthier vines.
Vineyards devoid of the use of chemical pesticides and various preventative spraying methods, suffer far less soil depletion.
Natural wine offers a true expression of the terroir. With richer, chewy textures and wild, earthy, often gamey flavours.
