As she says on her website:
From the study of differences in soil, microclimates, sun exposure, age of the vine, planting density, pruning and varied works of viticulture … I feel that today I am privileged to have created a knowledge base that allows me to understand the wonderful puzzle that our region offers.
We all have dreams. Try dreaming of Provence. The terrain is stunning: hills, bushes and shrubs in green and ochre. Soft herbal smells of wild lavender, rosemary and thyme fill your nose. Winds surround you. The Mediterranean ocean is in front of you. Then there is wine. But in the winter, spending hours in fascinating conversation in people’s wine cellars is a cold pleasure. The good thing is, you are almost alone. I recommend Norwegian wool underwear, or going in Summer, Spring or Fall. Failing that, simply dream about it, and read on (Dreaming of Wine in Provence, Color Magazine – Ed. 34 – Feb. 2011).
Wine used to be simple. You liked it or you didn’t. You could afford it or not. You could buy it in your local shop or you couldn’t. Easy. Wine is not so simple any more. Are you confident you drink the wine you believe in? The terroir police are after you. Drinking wine these days is an ideological choice. Do you buy global or local? Do you prefer US, international or a regional style? It’s time to decide what side you are on. Do you pledge allegiance to big business or with the small farmer? How do you even know which is which? This is complex, but you can crack it.
See Wine Wars (html): Terroir-torial disputes of Place, Politics and Profits, online now, including vintner interviews (Macari, Martha Clara), Trond’s Wine Picks (Lavoro Syrah, Bergen Road Macari Bordeaux blend, Black Coyote cab) and links to a small selection of sites that discuss how terroir matters to consumers.

- Wine Book Review: Redrawing the World Wine Map October 15, 2019Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson, The World Atlas of Wine 8th edition. Mitchell Beazley, 2019. The notion that we must redraw the world wine map comes up a lot. Climate change is redrawing the map — you’ve heard this before, haven’t you? And I’ve written about how globalization is redrawing the world wine map. And […]Mike Veseth

Other Press, 2019 (previously published in French as Insurrections Culturelle by Éditions Stock, Paris, 2015).

- Terroirists vs Naturalists: Tribal Wine Wars September 24, 2019Wine has many tribes — you probably belong to one of them. Last week I wrote about the Martians, who are interested in only the best in wine and are often disappointed with what they find, and the Wagnerians, who promote a more democratic “everyday wine” vision. They are often disappointed, too, but in different […]Mike Veseth
