The wine is made from a blend of Riesling and Pinot Gris, with some Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Auxerrois. These varieties are meticulously cultivated in organic and biodynamic vineyards around Ammerschwihr, grown on predominantly loess soil. The grapes are hand-harvested and de-stemmed, then gently pressed. The fermentation process takes place in large Alsatian oak vats, known as foudres. True to natural wine principles, this blend is created with zero added sulfur and is both unfined and unfiltered. The wine shows notes of exotic fruit and spices, making it an exceptional choice for food pairing.

The Producer: Christian Binner

The Binner family, established in the village of Ammerschwihr since 1770, initially engaged in polyculture, later transitioning to full-fledged wine-growing post-World War II. The family has a long-standing tradition of organic farming, a practice preceding official certifications. In the 1950s, despite the agricultural shift towards mechanization and chemical fertilizers, the Binners, led by the patriarch of the family, remained committed to traditional farming methods. They continued with labor-intensive handwork, using manure and natural treatments in the vineyards. This adherence to organic practices has resulted in the preservation of vines dating back to the 1930s, planted by the family's forefathers, which have never been exposed to chemicals.

This philosophy extended beyond vineyard management to their cellar practices as well. Under the guidance of Joseph Binner, and influenced by Marcel Lapierre, legendary Beaujolais grower and a trailblazer in the natural wine movement, the family began crafting wines without added sulfur as early as the 1990s. This approach has solidified the Binner family's reputation as respected figures in the natural wine community, maintaining a legacy of organic and natural wine production through generations.

Shipping Policy


Stress-Free Shipping

At Primal Wine, we like to be transparent about everything we do. When it comes to buying products online, shipping is the most important aspect, and that’s why we take great care in shipping and handling your order using only 100% recycled packaging material.

Important Compliance Requirements

FedEx and other carriers we might occasionally use can only deliver wine to customers who are 21 years or older. Someone must be at the address to receive the package, carriers don't just drop a package and leave. They must ensure the person receiving the wine is 21 or older.

Re-shipping a Package

If a package gets returned to us after three failed delivery attempts, we can only re-ship the wine upon payment of a re-shipping fee to be determined based on shipping address and number of bottles. Shipping wine is extremely expensive, we are sorry about this, but we have no other choice. Please make sure there's always someone at the address you enter as your shipping address.

If you'd like to receive a refund for a package that was returned to us after FedEx made three delivery attempts, we can do that but we must keep a $20 refund fee; FedEx charges us a lot of money for returns, unfortunately, I can't stress this enough.

Re-routing a Package

If you'd like to re-route a package after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a $25 re-routing fee. We cannot re-route a package across state borders. For any change of address, please contact us as soon as possible, ideally within 1-2 days from placing the order or we cannot guarantee we'll be able to reroute or change your order's shipping address.

Canceling an Order

If you'd like to cancel an order after it's been shipped, we can do so upon payment of a small cancelling fee – the amount depends on how big the order is. Carriers charge us a lot of money to recall a package en-route.
