Natural Wine Part 2 with Doug Wregg from Les Caves de Pyrene
This show was published 13 May 2011
Doug Wregg is Sales & Marketing Director at Les Caves de Pyrene, independent wine importers and wholesalers. They are supporters of ‘natural wines’ which are wines made with minimal intervention in the vineyard and throughout the winemaking process.
In the second interview with Doug we find out the Loire is the home of natural wine growers (about 40% of 250-300 growers who fall under this natural wine umbrella). While the domestic French market is the biggest, there’s a growing interest from Japanese consumers and, the USA and Australia are importing natural wines and even making some. There are also a number of natural wine bars popping up in Sydney and London – head to Terroir in Charing Cross, a bar owned by Les Caves de Pyrene.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
