GW Badge Guide

These handy badges are here to help navigate the (sometimes intimidating!) world of natural wine.


Weekday Bangers

Tuesday-friendly with incredible value.

Weekend Prizes

Fancy meals, second-to-third dates & nice gifts.

Rare Jewels

Rarities, oddities & top cuvées, here once or twice a year.

Age Worthy

Here for a good time *and* a long time.

Hidden Gems

Under-the-radar varieties, producers or regions we love.

The Canon

Benchmark producers & natural
winemaking legends.


Crisp & Mineral

Zesty, high acid & crunchy wines to refresh.

Plush & Textured

Opulent, full-bodied sips to steal the show and pair with main courses.

Light & Lifted

Fresh & aromatic reds, often with low ABV.

Juicy & Medium-Bodied

Smooth & structured with ripe fruit & supple tannins.

Full & Rich

Bold and beautiful reds, often with oak & spice.


All! The! Fruits! Think apples, ripe berries and fresh citrus.


Brine, spice, leather & other non-fruit notes are the star.

Natural wine isn’t *always* freaky!

Outrageous, other-worldly oddities. Freaks only!
