About Brutal !!! Wines:
The Brutal wine corporation is a loose conglomeration of natural winemakers. Once accepted into the club, the winemaker must make a wine that is brutal in some way, in other words it must be extreme. The wine must only be made in one barrel, and must have no sulfur added. Generally all the labels for Brutal wines must look the same, although a few deviations have been allowed in more recent cuvées. In this case the skin maceration involved is the extreme element of the wine.
