Low Sulphite Wine

Here we are lisitng some genuine artisan wines made properly with minimal use of additives, which don't fall within our categories of "organic, biodynamic or sulphite free". They are handmade on a very small scale by small family wineries combining traditional techniques with modern advancements.

Many of them farm organically or biodynamically although don't believe in having to pay annual fees to be certified as such. They don't see any reason why they should be charged extra for making wines as they've always been made.

These wines are very low in sulphites and any of the other 80+ chemicals commonly found in big brand factory produced wines. Many are fermented with the grapes' own natural yeast, and many have only a light filtering, some have none at all so all the goodness and natural anti oxidants are left in the wine.

They are a very healthy lifestyle choice, and of course when buying these wines you will also be helping small dedicated winemakers, as without customers they would not be able to continue making these fantastic wines..

  1. Julia Verdejo Sobre Lias

    A fantastic new wine which is a pet project from our favourite Spanish supplier. Cecilia had Rosa Zarza make the wine, and many of you will have enjoyed her reds such as the Incredulo wines and the superb Tinta Rosa and 14 Meses.

    Well here Rosa has made a superb Verdejo from organically grown grapes.

    Delicious flavours, fresh and crisp yet with some body and complexity from 4 months on the lees.

    A fantastic wine for summer and a bargain at this price!

  5. Rainbow's End Chenin Blanc

    Rainbow's End is one of my favourite wineries. This time Anton has aged some of his excellent Chenin Blanc in wood for a few months.

    Absolutely delicious! The wood has added some body and good mouthfeel. Ful of flavour yet still clean and fresh on the finish. This is excellent wine and very low sulphite too, so no ill effects or headaches etc.

    Highly recommended.
