A 'Natural Wine' from Uruguay

My quest to bring you interesting wines from far flung lands which you may otherwise not get the opportunity to try takes me to all corners of the globe and this month is no different as we find ourselves in Uruguay.

This wine, which is from the Canelones region in the south of the country, is not just unusual because of its locality. The Vinedo los Vientos winery has a long tradition of making high quality wines in very small quantities by using almost forgotten techniques. However in 1995, Pablo Fallabrino took charge as head winemaker and imported state of the art winery equipment from Italy and is now producing a range of unique wines by marrying modern technology with ancient practices. What sets this particular wine apart is the complete lack of the use of sulphur during the wine making process. People often don't realise that the use of sulphates has been an essential part of winemaking for centuries. This is because it protects the wine from impurities, oxidisation and disease, without its use winemaking on a commercial scale would be impossible. It is however possible to make small quantities of wine in highly controlled conditions without the presence of sulphur and we are pleased to be able to share this fantastic 'natural' wine with you in this month's case. Interesting fact, sulphates are used as a preservative in many kinds of edible produce and there is a significantly higher sulphate presence in a bag of supermarket salad than in a bottle of wine!
