Find out more about natural wine—made naturally from organically or biodynamically grown grapes—from leading authority Isabelle Legeron MW.
Isabelle Legeron campaigns for natural wine around the world and is recognized as a leading authority on the subject by The New York Times. She runs the hugely successful RAW wine fairs in London, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, and Montréal. In Natural Wine, Isabelle reveals why the finest, most authentic wines are those made naturally. While currently not regulated by an official definition, natural wines are made from sustainably farmed, organic (or biodynamic) grapes, with nothing removed or added during winemaking, bar at most a dash of sulfites. It is good old-fashioned grape juice fermented into wine—just as nature intended. If you care about what’s in your glass, want to explore unique flavors, or are keen to support small-scale producers, then you need to know more about natural wine, and where to find it. Natural Wine explains the processes involved, introduces you to some of the growers, and suggests over 140 of the best wines for you to try. This third edition has been fully updated, including more recommendations for orange wines and bubbles, and a section on co-ferments.
