Interview Part I (in French)
Interview Part II (in French)
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.
