Where To Drink Natural Wines In Metro Vancouver

Wine bars in Metro Vancouver are rapidly expanding their wine lists to include natural wines, due to popular demand. You may be wondering: what classifies a wine as ‘natural’? A number of factors are included in the definition, such as wines made with organically or biodynamically grown grapes, low intervention processes, and having little or no preservatives added.

Here are some hot spots to hit—and what to sip:

VV Tapas Lounge

VV Tapas Lounge offers flights of all their natural wines that are sold by the glass, plus happy hour deals at 50% off where the guest receives the wine ‘blind’ (no peeking at the label) and is asked to try to guess the grape or region for a VV gift certificate. Be sure to try BC natural wines like the Free Form Riesling from Summerland, and Artakama’s Syrah, from Oliver.

957 E Hastings Street


Pacific Breeze Winery

Visit New Westminster’s Pacific Breeze Winery’s to try their 2020 Orange, a natural style wine, available by the glass or to take home. They call it Orange because of the colour that appears naturally, without added colour or flavour. The wine is naturally fermented with minimal winemaker intervention, un-fined and unfiltered.

Provence /TWB (The Wine Bar)

Provence/TWB in Vancouver serves eighteen natural wines by the glass and more than twenty-five by the bottle.  Ryan Johnson, Assistant Wine Director says these are two of his favourites:

“Autour de l’Anne Wonder WomAnne Pet Nat Rosé, Languedoc, France, uses the oldest sparkling method called Méthode Ancestrale, where wine naturally finishes fermenting in bottles with nothing else added. The grapes ripen in the hot Languedoc sun from a biodynamic producer then aged in the cool and humid climate of Loire region affectionately referred to as Loiredoc.” Johnson also suggests Mas de Gourgonnier Les Baux de Provence, 2019 saying, “the folks at Mas de Gourgonnier were pioneers in organic vineyard farming starting back in the ’70’s. Practising non-interventionist winemaking, they were natural before anyone called wine ‘natural.’ We lovingly call this our house red at Provence because of its approachability.”
