NATURAL WINE FOR YOUR HEALTH
A "natural" approach means living in harmony with the land and working with--rather than in opposition to--nature. At Cantiga, we practice "minimal intervention" wine making, keeping a light touch and allowing our wines to ferment and age at their own pace, without manipulation or chemical additions. Our wines are very low in sulfite and do not undergo malolactic fermentation. As a result, many people who have given up on wine due to allergies are finding that they can drink our wines without any adverse effects.

So how do we determine which wines to age, and which to drink up quickly?
