Wines with no sulfites

When in Wales : buy these French wines

Herebelow are French wines that I recommend and where to buy them in Cardiff and Wales.

The below vintners often use no sulphur dioxide (SO2) during the winemaking or the bottling. Only a few bottles may contain sulfites — in very small quantities. (Around 10 mg per liter. Ask the merchant or the importer.)
