It's no secret that we love wine. We love the way it tastes, the way it makes us feel, and the way it looks. That's the charm of Natural Wine. This guide will give you key tips for choosing the perfect natural wine gift box for yourself or your loved ones. Let's find the right Natural Wine box for you.
What is Natural Wine?
Before we dive into defining Natural Wine, let's discuss what it's not. Many people believe Natural Wine is a new upcoming trend. However, it dates back to human civilization before modern manufacturers started processing wine in factories.
There isn’t actually a universally accepted or legal definition of what Natural Wine is. That said, a simple definition that most agree to is:
...wine that is farmed organically (at minimum) and made (or rather transformed) without adding or removing anything in the cellar. No additives or processing aids are used, and 'intervention' in the naturally occurring fermentation process is kept to a minimum. As such neither fining nor (tight) filtration are used. The result is a living wine – wholesome and full of naturally occurring microbiology.
Therefore, Natural Wine is pure fermented grape juice without any additives. It has no ammonia, no processed filtration, and no animal products like egg whites. In addition, grapes for Natural Wine are grown on organic or biodynamic farms with nutrient-rich soil. These features make Natural Wine perfect for you if you're on a keto or a low sugar diet.
How To Choose the Right Natural Wine Gift Box
When choosing the right Natural Wine gift box for ourselves or others, we often find ourselves at a loss. There are so many different wine boxes in the market, and it can be hard to know which one suits you perfectly. Consider these factors as you select your next Natural Wine box to ensure you get the best value for your money.
Choosing a wine gift box from a reputable company that curates high-quality wines is important. A great tip is to read online reviews from previous customers to check the company's credibility. Through the reviews, you can get key information, such as the quality of the wine to the company's customer service.
When it comes to choosing a Natural Wine box, the next thing you need to consider is the quantity of wine in the box. If you only drink wine on special occasions, you probably don't need a box containing 12 bottles. Instead, choose a package with 6 bottles. On the other hand, if you like to have a glass of wine every night, you might want to consider a larger box of 12 bottles.
Shopping for Natural Wine can be very thrilling, but you could feel overwhelmed if you are unprepared. If you don't know which wine to choose, consider picking a wine bottle that suits the current season.
- Summer: White wines are excellent summer choices since they are lighter, and most have fruit flavors like citrus.
- Spring: Rosé is the perfect wine for spring. Its grapes are harvested in fall, then go through aging, fermentation, and production, and the wine is released in spring.
- Fall: Fuller white and light red wines pair beautifully with traditional fall dishes.
- Winter: Heavier full-bodied red wines go well with seasoned, heavy dishes. Sparkling Natural Wine is also great for winter.
The Pricing and Shipping
When picking out the perfect Natural Wine gift box, it's all about finding the right combination of price and shipping. Pricing can be a tricky subject, but when it comes to wine boxes, you generally get what you pay for.
For example, Dan Berger, a journalist who has been writing about wine for nearly 50 years, estimates that nearly all American red wines that cost under $20 a bottle contain Mega Purple. This is a coloring agent that’s 68% sugar and it is usually added to industrial wine to give it color and thickness.
You'll have to pay a bit more if you're looking for a high-end box with top-of-the-line wines. But, if you're looking for a more budget-friendly option, plenty of wine boxes out there won't break the bank.
Shipping is another essential factor to consider. That's why you should ensure that the company can ship your wine gift box to your location. Some companies only ship to certain areas, so checking before you order is important. It’s also best to find a company where shipping is included in the price, so you don’t have to pay a lot for shipping.
Frequency of Shipments
If you are a wine lover, you'll want to ensure the Natural Wine box you choose will be shipped regularly. Long waits for wine deliveries are among the last things any wine lover wants. That's why checking the frequency a company delivers wine to your location is best. Luckily, at Dry Farm Wines, we provide shipments monthly or bi monthly with enough bottles of wine to get you through the month. We also offer one time gift selections.
As you select your Natural Wine box, consider how customizable it is since some packages are more customizable than others. If you have specific preferences when it comes to wine, then ensure your gift box fits your taste. At Dry Farm Wines, we offer fully customizable Natural Wine boxes with four selections of wine.
- Red wine boxes. They can come with full-bodied red wines or a classic mix of light, medium, and full-bodied red.
- Mixed boxes that have an assortment of white and red wines
- Purely white wine gift boxes
- Sparkling Natural Wine that fixes like champagne
The Wine Company You Want to Support
Finally, it's great to support the wine company you're buying from. Ordering from Dry Farm Wines is an opportunity to support hundreds of small family farms scattered around the world that all believe in regenerative farming and making wine the right way. Moreover, when you buy a wine box from companies such as Dry Farm Wines, you're assured of getting only the best quality Natural Wine.
Gifting Wine for Occasions
A Natural Wine subscription or membership is a gift that continues to give. At your chosen frequency your recipient gets a collection of wines to enjoy. This can be a great opportunity to share wines you know they will love or give them a mixed collection to try.
Opportunities for Natural Wine gift boxes:
- Valentines Day
Of course an occasion isn’t always necessary to give a quality gift. Wine gifting has always been a pleasant gesture for individuals moving into a new home, getting married, or even hosting a large family holiday. Be creative and give a Natural Wine gift box that is sharable and exciting.
