What people say about our book on organic wines

We have been pleased to see a few reviews recently of the English language edition of our book on organic wines: Organic, Biodynamic, and Natural Winemaking. Here’s what they say:

  • ”A very interesting book.  It discusses and describes organic, biodynamic, and natural wine making, and viticulture in terms that anyone, not just a wine producer can understand” says MyWinePal.
  • “The clear and systematic overview makes it possible for both the wine enthusiast and the professional reader to use the book as a reference work for everything that has to do with environmentally friendly methods in the vineyards and in the cellar!, by Jochen Erler, written in German, in the Austrian magazine Weinbau

    I found your book very helpful in understanding and appreciating the move towards organic wine as we are ourselves just beginning the EcoCert certification process for our vinyard. However, I was rather surprised that for the several winegrowing areas of France you made almost no mention of Cote de Provence. As that is our AOC I would have been interested to learn what our neighbors are doing in this area.

      Thanks for your comments and glad you like the book.

      I guess the “excuse” we have is that the main objective was to explain what organic wine (et al.) really is and not to make a comprehensive review of how it is implemented by various winemakers in different regions. And PACA is indeed one of the regions in France that is leading in organics. But space (and time) was limited.

      I should perhaps mention that the Swedish edition has a more in depth text on what the winemakers say and think. Not that this is of any use to you 😉 The UK publisher wanted to shorten it since they have other books that deal with winemakers more. But even then the producers that we talk about are the same as in the English edition.

      I think you should see the producer comments (and recommendations) more as an illustration and some examples of what is out there rather than any thorough review of wineries in the area.

      But you’re fortunate to be close to many producers so it should be easy to go and see them and talk to them.
