The super natural and iconic wines of Josko Gravner

Beyond the “natural wine” and the “orange wine” movements, there is Gravner — a winemaker you might as well call “super natural.” Already known for his eccentric winemaking techniques and his truly hand-made wines, he stunned the winemaking world nearly a decade ago when he started aging his white wines in terracotta amphoras. After vinification, he racks his wines to amphora and then buries the vessels, unearthing them when he feels the wine is ready to be bottled. A staunch believer in biodynamic and cosmic winemaking, he produces some of the world’s most iconic labels, including his 2003 Ribolla Gialla, which will be served at the Orange Wine dinner on April 5, a white grape grown in the transnational Collio appellation of Friuli and Slovenia.

Check out Gravner’s site to learn more about his cosmic approach to winemaking.
