    What is natural wine?

    Natural wine respect man and nature

    We believe in a greener world, with good food and good wine. For us, A good wine is clean first, but what does it mean?

     

    Some of these criteria are generally accepted by most natural wine growers and producers :

     

    - Organically and/or biodynamically grown grapes

    - Dry-farmed, ("de rulo" in Chile), low-yielding vineyards

    - Hand-picked

    - No added sugars (chaptalization) or foreign yeasts or foreign bacteria

    - No adjustments for acidity

    - Not any additives for color, mouth-feel, minerality...

    - No external flavor additives, including those derived from new oak barrels, staves, chips, or liquid extract

    - Low to no fining or filtration

    - No heavy manipulation, such as micro-oxygenation, reverse osmosis, spinning cone, cryoextraction

    - Low to no added sulphites as known as sulfites

    - no BS, no fast-food marketing, no green-washing!

    Does Organic taste better?

    (external resource in pdf to read to understand the cons but also the numerous pros about what is a dramatic and sincere taste, what can be a quality, what can be a default, in natural wines made from organic grapes)

    Mary Taylor Wine Tasting

    Taste All the Mary Taylor wines

    $10/person

    Buy a bottle and your Tasting Fee waived!

    "I created Mary Taylor Wine because I don’t think you should have to be a serious wine expert to experience the kind of honest, authentic wines that the Europeans have been enjoying for centuries.

    Our simple White Label series is here to serve as your guide through the rural backroads and winding country lanes of the European wine route. Whenever you open one of our bottles, you’ll know you’re getting more than just another commercial brand or standard Chardonnay or Merlot. That’s because every Mary Taylor Wine is a genuine “wine of place,” sourced from some of Europe’s most classic regions and, best of all, priced according to the “Old World” view of wine as an accessible everyday luxury."

    About ViV, and "Vivez Joyeux"

    From France to Key West, there is one step. Julie and I decided to embark on the adventure, the passion to eat well and drink well did the rest. After a rich experience in discovering good regional products in France and Europe, artisanal cheeses and sincere wines, without conventional chemistry, we decided to bring our expertise in selecting good wines and good French recipes, more or less traditional to Key West. This slightly delirious paradise is the natural melting pot of Florida, and finally, of all old Europe, Latin America... In 2016, we decided to open our new gem: "Vivez Joyeux", then we renamed it, ViV Wine & Cheese bar and now ViV Wine Bistro, because "wine + food + bar = bistro". Though, of course, our fine selection of wines is influenced by all the producers of natural wines available in the United States, a chance to discover in Key West an eclectic selection of exquisite bottles from the world, produced by winemakers respectful of humanity, nature, and biodiversity.

    Enjoy and share together!
