The original technique of making Champagne. The "Methode Ancestrale" consisted of trapping the last of the sugar under bound corks to capture the CO2 and create an effervescent wine.
The technique became famous again in this century and has since been revived by adventurous winemakers, hipsters and wine freaks around the world.
This product is and will always be an expression of the people. The personality of each wine, from the soil and the sun to the glass. Each element was considered a piece of ephemeral art.
There is more than one way to make PETNAT. We make it according to the "Ancestrale method". That means we catch the spontaneously fermenting wine with about 10-12 grams of sugar and bottle it. We let the rest drain off in the bottle.
PETNAT is a playful wine that invites you to drink it. Slightly sparkling and full of yeast. These wines are to be admired with reduced seriousness.
Our methods in the vineyards and in the cellar are the same. Organic in conversion. We are busy converting all the land we own in order to get EU organic certification in 3 years. We don't use any of that weird stuff, we are natural winemakers.
