Ardor Natural Wines builds community around small-production natural wines. We appreciate character-driven wines that focus on terroir and receive minimal intervention from the winemaker. We sell unique wines from all over the world. The selection is frequently changing based on limited quantities or what we are currently into drinking.
WHAT'S NATURAL WINE?
*The key aspects of what we consider to be a natural wine are:
- Vineyards farmed organically and/or biodynamically
- Handpicked grapes
- Spontaneous fermentation
- No fining or filtering
- Low to no sulfites
- Wine making that respects the grapes and the land it comes from
This style of winemaking for us represents the best way to express terroir. We do not eschew modernity, but we do favor techniques that help to express a sense of place, rather than modern ones that tend to homogenize wine styles and erase individuality.
