'Natural Wine an Insult to Humanity' Says Top Chilean Winemaker

November 26, 2019

"The term 'natural wine' is an insult to the humanity of wine," said Chilean winemaker Fran├žois Massoc during a discussion with db in Itata last week. The winemaker, who is well-known in Chile for his wines using grapes from the historic vineyards of Chile, particularly those from the Itata Valley, made the comment when discussing his work to preserve a fast-disappearing legacy of small-scale viticulture in the south of the country.
