Best Natural Wine Restaurants

Curious about natural wine? You’re not alone. 

While terms like “organic” and “biodynamic” differ by regulation and definition, restaurants are making room for wines either made with a gentle environmental impact, or are as unadulterated as possible, and sommeliers are excited to spread the word.

“I hope this is not a trend, and this is a soft revolution,” says Pascaline Lepeltier, MS, beverage director at Rouge Tomate in New York City. “I grew up in a wine region with a lot of biodynamic, organic and natural producers, in Anjou [France]. It makes sense, if you want to have a wine that expresses a place, a vintage and a craft, these kinds of farming are the most appropriate to grow healthy vines.”

These sommeliers spill on why diners should sip—and support—sustainable wines.
