Natural Wine Association

The NWA is a union of viticulturists and wine-makers who exclusively follow organic or biodynamic methods.

‘Natural wine’ implies the following:


1.  Winegrowers* plant and cultivate their vineyards according to the rules and requirements of organic (or ecological**) farming.  They look after the environment and try to create the most sustainable ecosystem possible in their vineyards.

2.  Winegrowers do not employ methods or means of making wine which could cause qualitative change of its natural organoleptic characteristics.

3.  Winegrowers acknowledge the vital contribution of terroir to the production of a wine, and attempt to reveal its specificities.

4.  Wine labels used by winegrowers must always honestly and fully describe a wine’s origins. 


Our association aims to support and encourage the development of organic viticulture and natural wine-making in Georgia in order to achieve the following:


·         Foster healthy and viable vineyards and ecosystems for future generations.

·         Enable wine lovers to experience wines that have maintained all the natural aromas, flavours, alcoholic content, liveliness and specificities of their grapes and terroirs.

·         Through the use of the association’s logo as a guarantee of quality, create a recognizable symbol which will represent the association’s members and their wines and serve as a guarantee of their commitment to organic viticulture and natural wine-making.

** Ecological Farming is based on agroecology and combines modern science and innovation with respect for nature and biodiversity. It ensures healthy farming and healthy food.  It protects the soil, the water and the climate. It does not contaminate the environment with chemical inputs or use genetically engineered crops.
