Alice and Jancis talk natural wine

Having whizzed off to the Jura this week I've not yet had time to go through my notes on the wines I tasted at the Natural Wine Fair but here's an interesting short video from Jancis Robinson's website of her interview with US natural wine champion Alice Feiring . . .

And you'll find Alice's own thoughts on the difference in attitude between Britain and the US towards natural wine here.

Her main point is that the UK trade and critics are too influenced by formal wine education such as the MW and WSET qualifications, a criticism from which she absolves Jancis. Quite rightly. I've noticed she is notably open-minded on the subject.

And there's more! Alice also interviewed Jancis on video. This is getting positively incestuous . . .
