Publisher Comments:

"Goode and Harrop are terroirists determined to protect and preserve wine as a unique part of civilized life. Authentic Wine is both stirring manifesto and a reasoned, practical guide. Vive les terroirists!"and#151;Mike Veseth, author of Wine Wars: The Curse of the Blue Nun, the Miracle of Two Buck Chuck and the Revenge of the Terroirists

and#147;Jamie Goode is a rarity in the wine world: a trained scientist who can explain complicated subjects without dumbing them down or coming over like a pointy head. It also helps that heand#8217;s a terrific writer with a real passion for his subject.and#8221;and#151;Tim Atkin MW

and#147;It is not surprising that wine often stimulates the flow of bile - often exchanged between highly opinionated groups of wine writers, drinkers and kibbitzers, each with a different aesthetic and ideology. This book by Jamie Goode and Sam Harrop mounts a passionate defense of "natural wine" from an utterly rational perspective. They make the case that we must choose to grow grapes and make wines in a natural way, allowing the wines to achieve the greatest expression of individuality, lest we drown in an a wine-dark (possibly over-extracted) sea of sameness.and#8221;--Randall Grahm, author of Been Doon So Long

"Praise for Jamie Goode's The Science of Wine":

and#147;Mr. Goode has written one of the most enlightening and clearheaded wine books to appear in years. This is a wine book youand#8217;ll actually read and reread.and#8221;--Matt Kramer, New York Sun

and#147;Lively and provocative.and#8221;--Eric Asimov, New York Times

and#147;Goodeand#8217;s readable prose makes even the most technical subjects accessible. For anyone interested in more than just drinking wine, this is a must read.and#8221;Wine Enthusiast

Synopsis:

and#147;A great primer. . . . If you're new to the natural/organic/biodynamic wine debates, Authentic Wine is the place to start.and#8221;and#151;Huffington Post

and#147;This is one of the most engaging, thoughtful and enlightening books on contemporary wine. . . . A manifesto for an industry looking to shape its future.and#8221;and#151;Wine And Spirits

Naturalness is a hot topic in the wine world. But what exactly is a and#147;natural wineand#8221;? 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 wineand#8217;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 conceptsand#151;terroir, biodynamics, and sustainabilityand#151;in clear language. They also discuss topics including cultured and wild yeasts, wine and#147;faults,and#8221; the carbon footprint of the wine industry, and#147;naturaland#8221; 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.
