Flag bearer for the natural wine movement Doug Wregg has admitted he doesn’t think the majority of natural wines can age.

60-80% of natural wine should be drunk within the first year, after that they fall apart,” the director of sales and marketing for Les Caves de Pyrène told the drinks business.

“Most of the wines are light, pale, fizzy and fun. They’re meant for wine bars rather than cellars.

“It’s a miracle when something lovely happens in the bottle a few years down the line, but I wouldn’t bet my house on it,” he added.
