natural wine

Formerly common name for a wine, which (in order to increase the alcohol content) could not be fortified with sugar. A used attribute for it was also naturrein, which was abolished in connection with the German wine law in 1971. This was accompanied a year later from the so-called successor institution, which was designated at the foundation as the "Association of German Natural Wine Auctioneers" VDP (Verband Deutscher Prädikatsweingüter). In Germany and Austria, the term "nature", but also "real", "pure" and " Health wine ", As well as word connections with these not allowed.

The legislator assumes that, in principle, wine is a natural product and additional terms with "nature" and the like is a competition that misleads the consumer.
