Naked wines … it's only natural
When it comes to natural winemaking, sommelier Byron Woolfrey has noticed an upward spike in demand for wines made with minimal intervention. Woolfrey, who also runs Trolley'd, a mobile bar business, says what he loves about natural wines is they capture the true terroir of the region. "Consumers are more conscious of having a completely expressive and natural wine so you can taste the flavours of the land,” says Woolfrey. “It's also about knowing where your product comes from."
