#5 Naked Wine: Letting Grapes Do What Comes Naturally

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.

    Tim Fenton's a man after my own heart! I love telling little stories about wines I sell...about my trip to that vineyard, how a celebrity had a runner purchase a particular wine from me, it helps make wine less daunting and more personalized! That book's going on my wish list!!!

  • You know what's really good?

    Giving someone a book on, for example, port - and also giving them the wine it describes!

    Nothing like drinking a wine while you're reading about it.

    (Or am I simply posting my own Xmas wishlist...? Is that you, Mrs K?)
