I liked this article from Emiko Davis, Interviewing her Italian sommelier husband.


It echos a lot of what we have seen meeting winemakers in Südtirol. And the stuff they’re making isn’t ”hipster” at all, generally very elegant and well balanced, bringing out the characteristics of the grape with as little manipulation as possible.

I drink a lot of wines that are biodynamic but not "Natural".  They're some of my favorite things to drink:  you get all the purity, but some nights you don't want to be challenged by weirdness, no matter how "glou-glou" it is.

Wines like that get no love in New York.  The Cool Kids make like they don't exist.  Or aren't worth thinking about.
