Natural wines have largely entered the market creating a new commercial trend. Natural wines, a term that is current lacking a legal definition, often create misunderstandings regarding the quality of natural wines, the expectations of the consumer. Today there are various definitions given by local natural wine associations (mainly European countries), including the rules to be followed, a production pattern. In any case, their differentiation from organic, biodynamic and even conventional wines is distinct. In view of the implementation of the European Common Agricultural Policy 2023-2027 in relation to the labeling of wines is important to study the future of natural wines production.
