Présentation de l'éditeur

Naked wine is wine stripped down to its basics—wine as it was meant to be: wholesome, exciting, provocative, living, sensual, and pure. Naked, or natural, wine is the opposite of most New World wines today; Alice Feiring calls them “overripe, over-manipulated, and overblown” and makes her case that good (and possibly great) wine can still be made, if only winemakers would listen more to nature and less to marketers, and stop using additives and chemicals. But letting wine make itself is harder than it seems.

Three years ago, Feiring answered a dare to try her hand at natural winemaking. In Naked Wine,she details her adventure—sometimes calm, sometimes wild, always revealing—and peers into the nooks and crannies of today’s exciting, new (but centuries-old) world of natural wine.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Starts well but quickly unravels 21 février 2013
Despite starting in a relatively straight-forward manner, I soon found that Naked Wine began very hard to follow: the more the author became obsessed with the origins of the natural wine movement, the more the writing seemed to unravel and the more difficulty I had working out who people were. In short, this book offers a very cursory look at a particular side of the natural wine movement, and in a very personal way. I would have prefered something more general and more instructive.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Journey for natural wine 30 août 2011
Par S. Berkowitz - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I loved Alice Feiring's first book--The Battle for Wine and Love or How I Saved the World from Parkerization--in which Alice goes in search of the answer to why a wine she loved is no longer the way she remembered it. This book, similarly, is a search for something important to Alice. In this case, it is so-called natural wine and how it developed. In order to describe it more aptly, she has called it "naked wine." It is a story of vignerons, scientists, pioneers in many places, including France, California and Spain. Alice visits these places to delve into what motivates these winemakers to make this kind of wine. Her adventures are always interesting and are written in a descriptive style that helps the reader to picture the setting, the people and how the discussions must have taken place. She also uses similes as further descriptors. I enjoyed this book immensely and found Alice's adventures in searching for the derivation of the modern natural wine "movement" to be fun and captivating.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book is a must read 5 octobre 2011

For a wine drinker who is also into natural foods, this book is essential. It is a nonfiction book that reads like a novel, drawing you into the author's passion for unadulterated wines, grapes grown without chemicals, a finished product without additives. Although the book is loaded with information, it also is a good story of the author's hands-on introduction to the wine-making process. The vividly described "characters" in this book are the winemakers and the vineyards themselves. Now that the author has revealed how most commercial wines are produced, I want to go to every wine merchant and demand a good selection of natural wines.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fun sketch of characters, a good primers of names. 28 août 2013
Par Brendan Burke - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
A good book chronicling a very under covered part of the new old wine world at large. This book talks about the discovery and rediscovery of great bold wine techniques. Technological wine making has been pushed to its limits and left us with a syrupy or hyper perfect enterprise class winery genre the world over. The emergence of the popular farm to table movement has finally started to reach critical mass in the wine world with natural wine making methods.

The knock on this book is the narration, at times the author reverts to a fairly median New York neurosis coupled with a subtle lightly masked vintners classism.
She seems to want to make a have and have not list of wine makers based on geography that is almost apologetic and insulting to the non French wine makers.

My take is this... there is a world of wine, a world of terroir; to ignore a wine from California, Croatia, or New Zealand just because of its longitude/latitude is to give
in to a superstition akin to believing that stepping on a crack will break your spine. A good wine knows no history, no allegiance, no flag, it is simply the product of a great
year in the life of this world.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Take on "Natural" Wine Making from a New York Wine Snob 31 juillet 2014
Par Bob Rooter - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
If you're a wine snob looking for a read of another wine snob rutting in the dirt with vine growers, and actually crushing grapes with her feet, and making wine without added yeast, this is your book.

Really, this is a story of how Alice (the NY City wine snob) heads down a rabbit hole and flying around the world looking for "natural" wine making and sampling the results. She likes to throw out the big words like "Vigneron", "elevage", "terroir" "pigeage" but there is no glossary to help us figure out what the hell they mean - so a lot of times I didn't know what the hell she was talking about. But I think these words were designed to illuminate my inferiority (and stupidity) - so that so that I'd bestow to Alice the "awe" and the crown of the all-knowing New York wine expert. Snobs like to use big words. It appears to elevate them from the rest of us morons down here in the dirt trying to grow grapes and make wine.

It's too bad that us wine lovers can't blend Alice's thin bland acidic prose with the thick, robust, humorous, and self-deprecating descriptions offered by author Mary Roach - who discusses complex subjects but brings them to us with humor and illumination.

Alice Feiring writes like a Sergeant Friday reporter (just the fact ma'm) mixed with her own seemingly one-dimensional emotions. The reader sometimes has to forge through the writing (Should I say "tromp through"?) to find the "good stuff" - the ripe clusters of knowledge hidden behind the leaves of bland text.

But I do feel (as a grape grower and wine maker) that Alice has a point - that American wines are way too processed - with way too many additives. Perhaps the growth of small U.S. vineyards will bring back the more natural wine and decent that she found in this book. (Which she has been kind enough to list for us to sample - worth the price of the book!)
Overall, I learned a lot from this book, it's well worth the price.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Always a little dull when you present facts around a leading opinion rather than science 30 avril 2014
Par Hannah E. - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
That is all I have to say. I like the concept of natural wine, but it starts as a moral opinion first and a scientific argument much later. It should be the other way around.
