  • Surprised nobody's mentioned him so far so I'll throw Gravner into the discussion. He as much as anyone put clay pots/terracotta vessels/amphorae/qvevri/giare/whatever-you-want-to-call-them on the winemaking map, starting decades ago. He uses giare from Georgia, which he lines with beeswax. His whites from them that I've had are almost as tannic... Read More

    Forum post in the topic White Burgundy Question

  • A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak.  I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines...

    Wine review by Viryo

  • Orange wine is something I feel I have read about more often than I have seen ... for over 8,000 years. Josko Gravner, a producer in Italy’s Fruili region began researching and adapting his modern winemaking style to this classic approach in the ‘90s and numerous other producers in his area and around the world have since followed suit.This wi...

    From the article Ditch Your Rose: Orange Wine Is Burning Hot

  • Gravner makes interesting wine, and Joly at times makes great wine. More good stuff coming out of Europe, perhaps, than the Americas.My experience with NPA has been mixed, not all bad (or boring or mediocre or whatever).Then there's always Thackrey. Read those things and then let's talk. The subject hasn't been completely exhausted for me. Read More

    Forum post in the topic Natural wine

  • Yeah, we've done ring-around-the-rosies several times on this subject ... ... ... like Nicolas Joly, Josko Gravner (who perhaps most greatly put those amphorae on the winemaking map), Rudolf Steiner, Masanobu Fukuoka, and even Greg's favorite Alice Feiring, amongst others? Afraid B.C. is playing catchup, and RP the peripatetic MW probably only... Read More

  • I just read an interesting article about some wine makers in BC trying wine made strictly from grapes with nothing added, in clay amphoras.  Is this nothing new in California? Read More

  • Last night got a little serious. Started out simply enough with just me and a ... Italy before this (including Gravner's interesting orangeish beast), and not any for years. Think a few people are working on it in Napa and Sonoma these days, but I haven't had any from there. I believe Dan Petroski of Massican may even be blending ribolla with ... Read More

  • Gravner Anfora Ribbola Gialla 2004


    After three hours in decanter, the nose remained muted yet gave hints of what might lurk below. For a moment I would get nectarine, and the next second it was gone. Dried flowers and honey graham cracker were sometimes present but never for long. On the palate, it was beautifully balanced and rich, yet again, backward with dried fruits and sweet... Read More

    Wine review by Eric Guido

  • I recently put together a tasting of orange style wines (for a future article). In my small of part of the wine universe, orange wine has a respected place. However, I found it odd, that it was so difficult to make my tasting successful. First, finding the attendees for the tasting took some doing. I was amazed by how many experienced Italian wi...
