At the beginning of April, I flew to NYC to meet the most famous natural wine writer in the world: Alice Feiring. She wrote the book most of us read as our first book on the topic of natural wine: The Battle for Wine and Love. And now she’s a few months away from publishing her second book: Naked Wine.

I asked her about the roots of this movement which originated in Beaujolais in France, but also about the roots of the nascent movement in California. Here is an excerpt:
