In the words of the author, Master of Wine Isabelle Legeron, “[This book] is a tribute to those wines that are not only farmed well, but also fly in the face of modern winemaking practices, remaining natural against all the odds. It is also a celebration of the remarkable people who create them.” In this second edition, Legeron expands on the evolving definition of “natural wine” and takes the reader deeper into the fields and cellars of the most highly regarded producers. Includes notes on over 140 natural wines, from around the world, for you to try.
Part 1 takes you on the journey of the juice from the vineyard through the cellar to the glass, and includes some common misconceptions about natural wine’s stability, faults, and the question of health. Part 2 introduces you to the the people who produce the wines, the natural wine movement, and how to buy (and taste) natural wines. Part 3 reviews all the styles of natural wine (not just orange wines!).
