I think we share very similar philosophies on natural wine. I love it - and will defend it until I die - but I don't love the dogmatic approach that some winemakers / somms / wine trade have about it (although I agree with you that movements like these need the extremists to move the needle).

The thing that struck me most about this piece (other than the dude tipping wine over you - poor show!) was that the winemakers drank beer and vermouth at the bars. I've always found it interesting how the most dogmatic of natural wine people will happily glug mass produced lager by the gallon without a second thought. Which would be totally fine if they weren't so irritating about wine.

Haha. Fantastic piece. No more light-blue polo shirts in natural wine situations.

In Philadelphia, yes, you might only now be getting out of the body cast. (And no note!) ๐Ÿ˜†
