Next week we're celebrating the number zero! We’re talking about the dedicated pool of natural wine producers who choose to completely remove themselves from the process and bravely let nature take its course. The result? Zero-zero wine.
Date + Time: April 21st, 7pm
Thank You, India
Fun Fact, did you know India invented the number Zero somewhere around the 5th century A.D.?
Zero both as a numerical and a concept meaning the absence of any quantity allowed us to perform calculus, do complicated equations, and paved the way for computers. Cool, right?
It also allowed for us to conceive of something called Zero Zero wine, an equally essential invention. Because smart phones + math < wine.
It All Comes Down To Nothing
Which sounds like an existential crisis but is really a nod to the committed small scale producers who are serving up Zero-Zero wine.
So what exactly is Zero-Zero wine? It’s the best kind of void. The kind of lack idealists dream of. Essentially, it means as little intervention as possible in the wine making process.
But wait, isn’t all natural wine zero intervention? Not quite. Natural wine doesn’t always mean zero intervention because as long as the producers that ‘naturally’ step in are transparent about what they do, it is still considered natural.
Doing Nothing Is Hard Work
And we’re not talking about your WFH life.
We’re talking about the dedicated pool of natural wine producers who choose to completely remove themselves from the process and bravely let nature take its course. Zero synthetic chemical input in the vineyard and zero in the wine making process, hence the name Zero-Zero wine. This is considerably harder because it demands an uncompromising attention to detail and no shortcuts or easy answers. It’s risky to say the least.
So in honor of these devotees, purists and lionhearted vintners, join us next week and revel in the delicious taste of …you guessed it. . . absolutely nothing.
