Wine is undergoing a major shift. Just as the good food movement before it, good wine is cleaning up its act – practicing sustainable farming, reducing or eliminating additives, intervening with the process as little as possible and letting the wine just… be. Here we examine 3 highly drinkable natural wines, discuss what makes them natural and what to look for when purchasing your own.

About Obladee

Back in October 2010 we created Obladee. A small, casual wine bar in Halifax’s downtown where people gather for thoughtful wine and food, good conversation and music. Where service is smart, engaged and unscripted. A neighbourhood spot with personality and heart.

We hope you like it here. Siblings,

Heather & Christian Rankin
