Hi.

Welcome to Utah Grape & Grain! We tell the stories that make Utah a surprisingly good place to explore the world of beer, wine and spirits.

Flora Fauna Wines

Flora Fauna Wines

In this episode we got to sit down with Brett Ludemann, founder and owner of Flora Fauna Wines. In his own words:

“Flora/Fauna Wines is a small, independently owned and operated wine brokerage located in Salt Lake City, Utah. Our goal is to introduce authentic, terroir-focused and natural wines made by artisanal producers rather than large, corporately owned wineries. We prefer wines made with organic and sustainably farmed fruit using natural techniques without any commercial additives—yeast, powdered tannin, coloring agents, acid, enzymes, nutrients, etc.”

Despite having a newly founded brokerage, Brett has been slinging wine in the area for many years and has deep knowledge in the industry. He’s also a family man and his wife Kate helps run the marketing for their company. Tune into this episode for Brett’s story about how he came to prefer natural wine and why he decided to strike out on his own. If you drink natural wine in Utah, there’s a very good chance that it’s something Brett brought into the state.
