It’s simple:wines made from healthy ecosystems have
more depth, complexity and purity.
Our standards [ essentially a “do no harm” philosophy when it comes to winemaking ] are a win-win for the environment and the quality of our wines. These natural winemaking practices aim for full flavor expression of a vineyard.
No Dirty Secrets
Did you know that up to 300 different additives — most of them chemical — can be added to wine but don’t have to be listed on the label? From animal byproducts to neurotoxins and mycotoxins, to the kind of dissolving agents used in plastic, mass-produced wine can be more weird science than what we think of as winemaking.
RedThumb wines are made from just three ingredients: organic grapes, native yeast and a small amount of sulfur added at bottling. No added sugar, acid, coloring or any animal products. We prefer to let the flavors of our wines develop au natural (a.k.a. the hard way).
