Pet Nat is a short form for Pétillants naturels, which means naturally sparkling. For this product, we bottle the fermenting juice and leave it with the yeasts and the natural sugar in the bottle so that the fermentation continues in the bottle and produces natural carbon dioxide. It is a very natural way to produce sparkling wine - without any additives.
