Zuiver Wijnen

Zuiver Wines are natural wines. Pure wines made in a natural way and with minimal intervention. This does not mean that we are charmed by all wines that fall under the heading of 'natural wine'. But for us, this natural production method is the only objective condition for pure quality, and this means that we will look for wines within this group for our enjoyment. To then select only those wines that we find pure, full, deep, elegant, balanced, pronounced, energetic and/or exciting: our pure wines.

Zuiver Wijnen imports and distributes natural wines. The company was founded in summer 2013 by Dick, but only reached maturity with the joining of Figo and Merijn in spring 2017. Dick and Figo are the driving forces of Pure, representing two different generations. Dick, advanced in age and exuberantly gray, started sister company Yoigokochi Sake Importers in 2008, and has been working with his selection of pure sake within the natural wine world for over a decade. Figo, young and equally exuberant bald, is head sommelier of the IJ River restaurant Choux, which since 2015 has served as the hub of the recently emerged natural wine movement in the Netherlands. Although Merijn, head chef of Choux restaurant, prefers to act as a silent companion behind the scenes, his vegetable-based cuisine is a constant inspiration for the other two to offer a wine selection that rivals the level of his brilliant dishes in terms of quality and adventure.
