A tale of natural wine

A tale of natural wine

Chungju, North Chungcheong Province - Last Thursday was another fulfilling yet busy day for French-born farmer and winemaker Dominique Herque and his Korean wife Shin Yi-hyun. In the hot, humid weather, the farmer couple began their day in their newly created vineyard in Chungju's rustic area of Suanbo-myeon, about a 30-minute drive from their home in the city. Nestling snugly at the foot of a hill, the vineyard is their nature lab. They have experimented with European-style organic farming - called biodynamic agriculture - to produce “100 percent, additive-free” natural wine. The grapes will be harvested from next year and used for their wine project. “By natural wine, I mean there's no sugar or other artificial additives in it,” Shin says.
