32 Days of Natural Wine: One More Week
So far we have a fantastic group of contributors for this year’s installment of 32 Days of Natural Wine, which kicks off next saturday the 19th, including folks from last year and a whole group of new contributors. Joe Dressner will be talking about the importance of telling consumers the exact percentage of grapes in a blended wine, Guilhaume Gerard will be traveling to South Africa for the World Cup and to taste the latest sauvignon blanc/semillon blends, Hank Beckmeyer talks to me about the importance of a Monsanto funded UC Davis education, Alice Feiring visits newly planted cabernet sauvignon vineyards in Spain, Lyle Fass writes a PR piece for a cult California pinot producer who sent him samples, Brooklynguy lets us in on the secret of the summer’s best value wine (hint: it’s from Argentina and it’s $5.99), i travel to Piedmont to taste barbera i don’t like, and Levi Dalton points out that letting distributors do your wine list saves time and money in the restaurant.
(Seriously though if you haven’t been assigned a day or still want to contribute shoot me an e-mail or “tweet” me or yell out your window until i come over).
