ROOTS NATURAL WINE – IMPORTER AND DISTRIBUTOR IN MALTA
What do we do?
Roots Natural Wine was born at the end of 2018 with the purpose of spreading the natural wine culture in Malta, through the import and distribution of sustainable wines produced by Organic, Biodynamic and Natural wineries.The wine we decided to import is made by Italian independent winegrowers, most of them, follow natural farming practices without any chemical intervention. Our wines are farmed organically and biodynamically, without any use of chemicals in the vineyard and in the cellar. We strongly believe that it’s necessary going back to drink genuine wines in their truest form. Neither artifacts nor improving practices in the cellars are accepted as well as technologies crutch, chemical products or sterilizing practises. All of these have a bad impact on the quality of the final product. We trust the importance of preserving our body and health like our producers do taking care of their soils and respecting the nature where the products come from. They sustain an healthy habitat in the vineyard generating living wine from living soils. In the name of this attention to the quality, we treat every single bottle with the respect it deserves with constant checks of the temperature, light and humidity of our warehouse and last but not least during the shipping phase and the deliveries to our customers. So, do you want to learn more about natural wine? Read below…
What’s natural wine?
A Natural Wine is a wine obtained:
– from an independent winemaker, from its own vineyards,
– on low yielding vineyards and from hand picked grapes,
– from an agronomy that is as natural as possible, usually organic or biodynamic,
– the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides or insecticides is forbidden
– fermented spontaneously, without the addition of yeasts or enzymes or other aids to fermentation,
– without added sugar or concentrated musts,
– without acidity adjustments or addition of other additives
– without clarification or micro-filtration.
Many natural wines are produced without any addition of sulphites, but we can also consider natural wines that have small quantities of added sulphites, which should not exceed 30 mg per liter.
NO ADDED SULPHITES – LOW SULPHITES
The most common feature is related to sulphites that will not be added during the vinification process. Sulphites are unhealthy preserving agents to be used sparingly during the wine processing.
NO CHEMICAL INTERVENTION
A natural producer doesn’t use any kind of chemical products during the vinification process or any invasive intervention that could change the quality and the flavors of his wine.
NO PESTICIDES OR HERBICIDES
Toxic synthetic pesticides usage is strictly forbidden, farmers adopt ecologically sustainable farming practices like non-chemical pest control. Instead of herbicides, manual handweeding and green manure is used.
HEALTHINESS – BETTER TOLERANCE
Eventhough we are talking about alcohol, a natural wine is absolutely more tolerable and digestable than an industrial one. No more headaches or allergies. Now you can drink safe.
We are very pleased to introduce our beloved winemakers!
