You’ve certainly heard of organic wines; and you’ve maybe heard of bio-dynamic wines; but did you know that there’s even another standard of care and attention that a wine maker can hold their production to?
Les vins vivants – or natural “living” wines – take consumers back to a time before modern production methods and chemical stabilizers transformed the wine industry. These wines are pure, simple, and anything but standard. On the nose and in the glass, they are an honest representation of the land where they grow and of the expertise of the hands that harvest and produce them.
Of course, with wines that are as diverse and unique as the people that make them and the conditions they grow in, each bottle has a story. And fortunately for us, Lausanne now has an expert living wine storyteller. Friends, you’ve got to stop into Mosto.
This little wine shop is one of the most interesting places we’ve discovered this year. Due to natural wine’s inherent fragility, the shop focuses on wines that don’t need to travel far – from France, Italy, Spain, Germany and Austria. Bring your curiosity and an open mind to Mosto’s sommelière Noemi Streuli and let her guide you in your discovery of something completely out of the ordinary.
If simplicity is indeed the ultimate sophistication, as Leonardo di Vinci once said, then Mosto’s selection of pure and honest wines offer an experience that’s worth the detour.
