Authentic Wine Summary


Authentic Wine: Toward Natural and Sustainable Winemaking by Jamie Goode

"A great primer...If you're new to the natural/organic/biodynamic wine debates, "Authentic Wine" is the place to start". ("Huffington Post"). "This is one of the most engaging, thoughtful and enlightening books on contemporary wine...A manifesto for an industry looking to shape its future". ("Wine And Spirits"). Naturalness is a hot topic in the wine world. But what exactly is a "natural wine"? For this pioneering book, best-selling wine writer Jamie Goode teams up with winemaker and Master of Wine Sam Harrop to explore the wide range of issues surrounding authenticity in wine. They begin by emphasizing that wine's diversity, one of its strengths, is currently under threat from increasingly homogenized commercial wines that lack a sense of place. Drawing on a global array of examples and anecdotes, Goode and Harrop examine complex concepts - terroir, biodynamics, and sustainability - in clear language. They also discuss topics including cultured and wild yeasts, wine "faults," the carbon footprint of the wine industry, "natural" as a marketing concept, and more. "Authentic Wine" illuminates a subject of great interest to wine producers, consumers, and anyone wondering where the wine industry is headed.

Authentic Wine Reviews


"A very good book... One of the more balanced and detailed accounts dealing with the issue of sustainable winemaking."- Robert M. Parker, Jr. -- Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate "An ocean's worth of savvy detail about both the more (organic farming, the endless shades of sustainability) and less (reverse osmosis, acidification) happy nuances of making wine." San Francisco Chronicle "A compelling manifesto for natural wine ... the understandable, everyday terms used make this a genuine guide to wine science for the citizen." -- Brian Elliott Scotland On Sunday "'Authentic Wine' performs the invaluable service of raising crucial questions and explaining complicated issues coherently." -- Eric Asimov New York Times "It's been a good year for wine books. The most compelling new book is undoubtedly Authentic Wine by Jamie Goode and Sam Harrop." -- Huon Hooke Sydney Morning Herald "Ambitiously comprehensive... Illuminating." -- Beverley Blanning Decanter "A very well written and useful book with a long shelf life. Once read, it is one to dip in and out of regularly." -- Mary Gorman-McAdams The Kitchn
