Natural wine has been one of the most controversial topics of the wine world in recent years. But what does "natural" actually meaning? Lettie Teague of the Wall Street Journal goes in search of a defintion, as well as an explanation for this genre's sudden rise to the spotlight. For some, natural wines are only those that use wild yeast; others tack on terms like "organic" or "biodynamic" as part of the natural wine umbrella.
The results of Teague's tasting were equally unfocused. While she enjoyed many of the whites and rosés, she found less to be excited about among the reds that she tried.
