Our wine philosophy
In a nutshell, we never drink poison.
Real wines are made with fermented grapes that have been grown without chemical intervention in living soils and so are true representations of their 'terroir'. The world of wine has never stopped evolving technologically, but too much technology and too much technicity has lead to over dressed, made-up, artificial wines that are produced in labs rather than vineyards. These wines, often produced with an arsenal of chemical fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and artificial additives not only destroy the soils they are grown in – their ‘terroir’ – but destroy the soul of the wine along with any authenticity in taste.
But happily, the fastest growing trend in vineyards is a return to sustainable natural, organic and biodynamic practices creating real wines that are the perfect reflection of their terroir, their ‘spirit of place’. These are the wines we love and these are the vineyards we visit.
Taste Tours exclusively features living wines with real taste that don't give headaches and also preserve soils, reducing CO2 emissions and allowing water-tables to stay clean.
