A few years ago, I started to hear the phrase ‘Pet-Nats’ making the rounds in the wine trade. As we have loads of natural wines here in London, I soon found out that Pet-Nat is short for ‘petillant natural’, a French term for wines that are naturally sparkling. It’s also known as the Ancestral Method. […] The post Pet-Nat, an Extra Brut Bulgarian Riesling appeared first on The Wine Sleuth ..read more
