<span class="larger"A wonderful wine from a top winemaker. Making organic wines with no added sulphur requires skill, dedication and top-quality grapes – and it took Jean Claude Mas seven years to develop his technique.
Sulphur dioxide or sulphites are used in nearly all wines as a preservative and antioxidant. For most people this isn’t a problem, though it can cause reactions for asthmatics – and cause headaches, flushing and rashes in others – so it’s not surprising an increasing number of us are choosing to cut them out. Leaving sulphur out also enhances this wine’s colour and fruitiness. It’s rich, opulent and complex with expressive flavours of redcurrant and black cherry. Organic cheers!

Vintage Roots sets strict standards for its own business.

Vintage Roots also supplies to many shops, restaurants, hotels and bars across the whole of the UK.
Organic roots – organic drinks are more popular than ever, but do they cost more, do they still give you a hangover – and are they made from carrots?
