Wine bottle necks with label 100% Natural

How’s it going for “natural wines”?

Very strange things – even completely incorrect – are sometimes written and said about “natural wines”, the wine category that a few years ago became one of the hottest subjects among wine geeks (and that still is largely limited to the wine geek crowd), and one that no one can really agree on what it […]

Terroir wine, industrial wine, natural wine, or technical wine? | New Brief out, #166 | The Wine Newsletter

Terroir wine, industrial wine, natural wine, or technical wine? Terroir wines are often said to be the opposite of industrial wines (or volume wines). In short, terroir wines are wines where you recognize the origin and industrial ones are wines where you do not (and that are produced in large volumes). However, it is not […]

Five “natural” wines from South Africa that are really good! | Britt on Forbes

There is a wine revolution quietly going on in South Africa. Or more correctly, a second revolution. The first one was when apartheid ended and the KVW iron grip on the wine sector also came to an end. That led to the birth of the modern wine industry in South Africa, where today you can […]

When the Amazon book recommendations make you happy

If you shop at Amazon you are no doubt familiar with their recurring marketing mails. Depending on what you have previously bought and looked at they send you recommendations for other things “that might interest you”. The other day I had one of those mail after having browsed for some technical wine books. At the […]

Delicious natural wines from Jean-Louis Tribouley | Britt on Forbes

Natural wines are still a hot subject of debate. Some like them some loath them. In fact, natural wines can be both good or bad, just like any other wine. But it is true that they tend to have a certain style that can take some getting used to. Quite high volatile acidity for instance. […]

Leafy Christmas gift…

A wine book is an excellent Christmas gift, especially for a wine lover… We have written four wine books, some of which have won both national and international prizes, most recently “the Nobel prize” of wine books (as they OIV jokingly called it). Unfortunately only one of them has so far been translated to English […]

Book Awards #2, almost…: Gourmand Awards nominations for two of our books

Jonas Larsson on our book on organic wines: “an eminent book”

I happened to click on a link in a wine marketing newsletter and found a “Sunday Chronicle” written by wine writer and editor Jonas Larsson. It was about organic (and similar) wines and begins like this: Organic, my dear Watson! I have repeatedly sighed, at least in secret, when listening to the enthusiastic proponents of […]

Poulprix, a "natural" wine from the Jura region

Trending in Paris: “natural” wine bars and restaurants | Britt on Forbes

Since a few years back it seems the craze on the Paris wine bar and bistro scene is restaurants focusing on “natural” wines, and similar low-intervention wines (sometimes also called “primitive” wines). This is a curious trend in some ways since these wines are sometimes hard to understand and not immediately appreciable by many wine […]

Do organic wines taste better? German wine producers answer

Organic, biodynamic and natural wines have a more concentrated flavour than traditionally produced wines, some of the producers claimed at a seminar on German organic wines that I recently attended.

“At the end, I understood rather more”, Rosemary George, MW, on our book on organic wines

Rosemary George is a Master of Wine wine writer spending a big part of the year in the Languedoc. Languedoc is the region with the highest proportion of organic wine producers in France.

“A uniquely thorough and clear book”, WijnWijs on our book on organic, biodynamic and natural wines

The Netherlands, just like Sweden, is a country that is keen on organic things. Food as well as wine. So it is perhaps not too surprising that a review of our book on organic wines (and similar things) pops up in The Low Countries. It is of course in Dutch, but since we lived in […]

“Biodynamic, Organic, and Natural Winemaking” press release has been noticed in media

“You make it and they will buy it” is a patently mistaken marketing principle. You have to tell the world about what you do too. Even if you think it what you have done is good, or at least OK, you still have to make people aware of it. That’s why we occasionally send out […]

A selection of some very good ”natural wines” | BKWine’s selection

“Natural wines” was the trendiest of the trendy not long ago. But as with all wines, it is not sufficient just to be a “natural wine”. There are good and bad ones, even among natural wines, as Tomas Eriksson emphasizes in his report from a tasting recently. There are several wine importers specializing in natural […]

Faulty is not natural, says Michel Chapoutier

Chapoutier in the Rhone Valley was first among the larger producers in France to go organic and biodynamic. Now the head of the firm, Michel Chapoutier, is disturbed by the fact that some wines that call themselves natural are simply defective. Their volatile acidity is too high and they are infected with Brettanomyces. This is […]
