A more measured look at organic winemaking
Britt and Per Karlsson have photographed and written a book titled, “Biodynamic, Organic and Natural Winemaking” that reviewer Robert Anding finds balanced and level-headed. That’s almost as rare as a calm and reasonable debate between Fox News and MSNBC.
As Anding says, “This book is perfect for people who want to learn about organic and biodynamic wines, and their ultra-orthodox relatives, natural wines. It neatly explains the differences between them and explains the various processes that are used in their production.”
A great recommendation for folks who want to cut through the bluster and see what organic wines are really all about.
A less dispassionate look at the cork/screwcap debate. (From India!)
The cork vs. screwcap debate doesn’t get quite as heated (for most) as the organic wine conversation, but there are still hardliners on both sides. And both sides are probably overstating their cases. Still, this is an interesting addition to the commentary.
For the record, I’m easy on this one. I’ll more then loss of wines that benefit from cellaring – there’s real romance in that for me for some reason. But as satisfying as pulling corks is, it’s hard to argue with the screwcap’s advantages.

Just for fun, though some are inside jokes …
