Natural wine is about preserving life from the vineyard, to the cellar and into the glass. I mean that quite literally—natural wines are full of life. If you’ve ever looked at wine under a microscope, it speaks for itself! Because life is fundamental to what makes natural wine so wonderful, you cannot have natural wine without organic farming and a vineyard that pulses with the living. Indeed, if a wine is made naturally but not farmed organically, in the end it is just a low-intervention wine and nothing more.

Because great wine is all about great agriculture, my book is predominantly about farming and real, practical stories. I want readers to inhabit the skin of an Italian producer who makes phenomenal homemade bread or a southern French lady who heals herself with plants. They’re not just winemakers—they’re real people with real philosophies that go far beyond wine. My book is as much about a way of living—a belief in life—as it is about wine itself. When you drink a great bottle of natural wine and when you eat food with provenance that has been produced with respect, you feel nourished in a way that isn’t possible otherwise.
