Natural wine in Svalbard

You may also order natural wines (that i have qualified) online for delivery in Europe.

Herebelow are natural wines that I recommend and how to buy them in Svalbard.

Here is my selection of natural wines: sulphur dioxide (SO2) often is not added during winemaking or bottling. Only a few bottles may contain sulfites — in very small quantities — around 10 mg per liter. The establishments must sell by the bottle (without asking you to purchase anything else, even if they are bistros). []
