If there is one thing that Christmas is about is celebrating and sharing a good moment with your family and friends. Enjoying some wine while doing so is not bad either.. What if it could be traditionally made, chemical free, natural and vegan wine?
About KC Wine: KC wine is China’s leading importer and distributor of natural and biodynamic wines, with an amazing selection of 100 wines, offering the best from each French wine region.
KC Wine’s selection follows a very strict quality chart: Micro
wineries, no chemical in the wine, Natural yeast fermentation (no foreign yeasts), and no transformation of the wine to adapt to market local tastes: They are grower wines, not industrial wines, with the specificity to have a very high level of drinkability, purity in the tastes, and that doesn’t harm their drinkers’ health with headaches or hangovers. They are simply pleasure wines. That is our way to dis nguish ourselves in China, because grower wines, with this strict chart of quality, represent only 2% of the world wine production.
