The Sulfate Question...
So many of our patrons have expressed concerns and confusion when it comes to this subject.
Sulate is a term used to describe sulfur dioxide and other sulfur derivatives. Sulfates are found in all wines as they are a natural product of fermentation. Sulfur dioxide when added to wine prevents oxidation and encourages quickened fermentation.
So all wines contain sulfates however sulfates are not added to all wines . Large volume
production houses most often add sulfates in order to bring vast quantities of wine to market as fast as possible.
At New World Wine Shop we pride ourselves on procuring our wines primarily from small artisan producers therefore practically eliminating the use of additional sulfates.
While we haven't produced a vaccination for the "wine flu" just yet, the quality of wines at New World Wine Shop can certainly help with the severity of the symptoms!
