What is a Pet Nat Wine? The Pétillant Naturel style of making sparkling wine is as ancient as they come, it’s an incredibly intricate way of making sparkling wine that dates back to the 1500s!!
Pétillant Naturels i.e Pét-Nats have been produced for centuries in a very particular method, the méthode ancestral to be exact, a process that requires the producer to bottle the wine before the fermentation has finished. Carbon dioxide is then produced in the bottle from the leftover sugars on the grapes, leaving you with a deliciously light sparkling wine!
Producers in the last five years across the world have been reviving the mèthode ancestral, now it's a very popular and current type of natural wine that's taking the world by storm with its elegant bubble, versatile nationality, and accessible price range falling on the £20-£30 mark.
