by Alice Feiring
Alice Feiring is well known for her thoughts on wine. Provocative and often iconoclastic, her first book, The Battle for Wine and Love: or How I Saved the World from Parkerization was well received by many readers, but off-putting to some. Some even issued a dare to Alice. You think it's so easy to make wine, try it yourself! And Alice did! Naked Wine is a look at Alice's experiences: who she spoke with to help guide her through a neophyt's natural wine making process, what she learned, why she learned, and why it makes better wine. Now we can all disagree on what wines we enjoy, but reading Alice's journey of discovery is something any wine lover who has fantasized about making wine should read.
