korean food / seoul / New trends in wine, 5 best naturalistic natural wine bars – 1842

“Natural wine” is easy to come by in recent years. The colorful wine labels and the color of the wine add to the flavor of the food just by looking at them. In general wine, yeast is added for fermentation during the brewing process, or a small amount of sulfur dioxide is added to prevent oxidation. “Natural wine” goes further from “organic wine,” which excludes compounds from the grape production process, such as chemical fertilizers and pesticides It is a wine made without adding any artificial additives during winemaking. Since artificial elements must be completely excluded, it takes more balls than regular wine. However, it has the advantage of being able to drink comfortably because it is heavy and not thick by minimizing chemical ingredients. From charming spaces that transform into wine bars in the evening to places with the largest selection of natural wines in the country! Here are 5 best natural wine bars, a new wine trend.
