Lyle Fass On Top Wine Trends

Lyle Fass picked his top five wine trends of the past year on sidetour.com. Natural Wine is one of them:

Natural wine people reject the excessive (as they see it) use of sulfur and only use a minimal amount at bottling to keep the wine stable. Why do they use sulfur?

I don’t want to bore you with the details, but I believe sulfur is necessary, though there are people who use it too liberally. How’s that for not taking a position? But one thing is undeniable, when natural wine is good, it is as wonderful and as exciting as wine can get.
