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 […]

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

We almost won an award (or two!) in the international Gourmand Awards (Gourmand International World Cookbook Awards) but not quite. We are still very proud to have been nominated to the international finals with 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 […]

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.

“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 […]

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.
