What is natural wine?
UNATURAL WINE IS WINE THAT RESPECTS MAN AND NATURE, MADE FROM A SINGLE INGREDIENT — GRAPES — AND SOMETIMES A BIT OF SULPHUR. IN FRENCH, “RAISIN" MEANS GRAPE. (YES, IT IS ORGANIC AND/OR BIODYNAMIC, MOST OF THE TIME)
A wine produced by winemakers dedicated to making healthy, vibrant wines, avoiding the use of chemicals in both the vines and the cellar. A wine which surprises and respects consumers – an ever increasing number of consumers who don’t want their wine to contain pesticides, herbicides and fungicides, and who also want to experience unique and radically different wines.

WHO ARE THESE NATURAL WINEMAKERS?
We have already referenced over 1300 winemakers and their wines, throughout the world. This index will grow daily thanks to your posts!
We consider a winemaker is natural if at least 30% of their wines are made with grapes only, and sometimes minimal doses of sulphur, in respect of the environment and of mankind.
Each wine posted on Raisin is moderated after the event. If it is considered natural, a link will point to the winemaker’s index entry where you will be able to discover their other wines. In this way, Raisin users' posts benefit the community
OUR MODERATION PROCESS
The map of places where you can find and drink natural wines is manually updated by the Raisin team on a daily basis. How do we choose the places that we recommend? It’s simple: each one must stock at least 30% of natural wines.
2,500+ registered places and counting! We’ve gathered information about restaurants, wine bars and wine shops throughout the world. Raisin provides the most comprehensive database dedicated to places offering natural wine.
