Dido & Jurriann worked for big industrial companies as well as for small boutique wineries. Their internship at Joan Ramon Escoda changed completely their approach and introduced them to the world of natural wine: wine made without any additions and without filtration or fining. Just transforming grapes on its purest form into wine: not adding or anything anything away. This sounds logical, but they experienced at first hand what can be added into wine - ranging from different types of yeasts to arabic gum - more than 88 additives are allowed in (also in AOC) wine. To be able not to work with these products, the grapes need to be of a very good (at least organic) quality. This leads to a intensified focus in the vineyard, working as natural as possible, obtaining the most delicious grapes.
