The Future Makers – by Max Allen
“The Future Makers takes you around the country and introduces you to the areas and the people shaping Australia’s wine future.”
Authentic Wine: Toward Natural and Sustainable Winemaking – by Jamie Goode and Sam Harrop
“Wine’s diversity is currently under threat from increasingly homogenized commercial wines that lack a sense of place.”
Naked Wine – by Alice Feiring
“Naked wine is wine stripped down to its basics—wine as it was meant to be: wholesome, exciting, provocative, living, sensual, and pure.”
How To Love Wine – by Eric Asimov
“Asimov evaluates the current wine culture, discussing trends both interesting and alarming, and celebrates the extraordinary pleasures of wine while, at the same time, questioning the conventional wisdom about wine.”
