Not fading

If there’s something that really gets under my skin, it’s when somebody tells me that “natural wine is just a fad”… What?!  Will somebody please explain to me what the hell that means?  Please?  How is something that has been around for centuries be called a fad?

I know that natural wine is quite a topic in the wine world today, and that almost everybody is trying to make a “natural wine”, but natural wine making (that is making wine from grapes actually), has been around for a long time and will continue to be around for years to come.

What may well be a fad is the loads of producers jumping on the band wagon just to label their wine as “natural”. Those producers making “natural” wine for the sakes of marketing will be singled out by people with palates anyway and by then we’ll just be drinking our good (natural) wines while everyone else is talking about them

drink wines that you enjoy and call them whatever you want.
