This is a must read for anyone who drinks wine, and especially if you're intrerested in organic wine. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. It is both a fast paced,fascinating story, and an education in key aspects of wine making, grape varietals and wine making regions. I loved it. ( )

For those into wine and wanting to understand what lies beyond Parker in the wine unknown, this book reveals some of that. Not so much a book of wine ratings, but a combination travelogue, autobiography, and wine region and producer history, that leads me to begin to ask questions about the authenticity to place and grape of the wine I drink.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0151012865, Hardcover)

"I want my wines to tell a good story. I want them natural and most of all, like my dear friends, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue,” says Alice Feiring. Join her as she sets off on her one-woman crusade against the tyranny of homogenization, wine consultants, and, of course, the 100-point scoring system of a certain all-powerful wine writer. Traveling through the ancient vineyards of the Loire and Champagne, to Piedmont and Spain, she goes in search of authentic barolo, the last old-style rioja, and the tastiest new terroir-driven champagnes. She reveals just what goes into the average bottle—the reverse osmosis, the yeasts and enzymes, the sawdust and oak chips—and why she doesn’t find much to drink in California. And she introduces rebel winemakers who are embracing old-fashioned techniques and making wines with individuality and soul.

No matter what your palate, travel the wine world with Feiring and you’ll have to ask yourself: What do i really want in my glass?
