Natural wines – Wine Scouts. Organic and biodynamic wines from around the globe.  Samples always offered by Pedro who is a font of wine knowledge.  Pedro says “This Saturday I will open the new vintage of a beautiful red wine from Piedmont in Northern Italy. The Umberta Iuli Barbera has a sun-splashed ripeness that rolls through soft tannins from blackberries into black liquorice and a smoky wisp of lapsang souchong tea, lingering like a very fine and fancy jam. Fabrizio Iuli makes his wines with as little intervention as possible, allowing the purity of his organic fruit and the unique expression of his special terroirs to show through. Though his vineyards are scattered among 18 sites, a vein of limestone runs through all of them, which give them their vigorous character and acidity. This wine is aged in concrete for 11 months and is fresh, vibrant and earthy. So yum!”
