Alice Feiring on the natural wine movement and fighting a male-dominated industry
“I like opening up the world of natural wine to people because I believe it's so much more exciting—and I get great satisfaction out of seeing people get thrilled."
Today, we're excited to welcome ALICE FEIRING to Salt + Spine, the podcast on stories behind cookbooks, in our first-ever DRINKS WEEK. This week, we're releasing four all-new episodes with some of the leading authors of recent cocktail and wine books.
Alice Feiring is the James Beard-winning author of seven books on wine, including her latest, Natural Wine for the People: What It Is, Where to Find It, How to Love It. She has been the leading voice of natural wine for nearly two decades. She is the creator of The Feiring Line, the world's first independent natural wine newsletter.
In today's show, we talk with Alice about the history of natural wine and the current natural wine movement, about how she's used her powerful voice to challenge and change a male-dominated industry, and of course, play a wine-themed game.
