Gravel Road Wines mission is to select and import high quality real wine, that is naturally made, from Italian producers that are not currently available for purchase in the United States.
“While living in Italy I would run daily through the countrywide of Tuscany and I would see the producers who sprayed a ton of chemicals and pesticides on their grapes. I would have to hold by breath or dodge the poisonous clouds at times as I ran and those were the moments when I decided that style of wine was not for me.” -Bobby Barnett
NATURAL: ORGANIC, BIODYNAMIC
Whether certified organic or not all the wines we import are natural without the use of chemicals or pesticides in the vineyard.
We only import winemakers who share our philosophy of natural wine without additives during the winemaking process. No additives to change color, acid, sugar, flavor, etc.
SMALL FAMILY WINERIES
Whose values & commitment to quality are In line with G.R.W. with simple practices from hand picking their grapes to taking a minimalist approach to sulphites.
G.R.W Italian producers tend to be small family businesses with limited annual wine production that were previously not available for purchase in the U.S.
