The moments in this series are becoming more and more focused and more and more exciting.

They are barely lectures-- barely seminars. They all shape themselves differently. The Minneapolis edition was a very comfortable discussion, like a big dinner table. To which really good wines were brought and poured for you.

Here, we engage in a kind of general anthropology of this movement, will focusing on the taste for spoilage and what it means. The emphasis will not be on technical aspects, or even what one might call critical, but rather: what does a Natural Wine taste like, and must the way that it presents itself obey any rules?

We will taste 12 wines as we talk: 4 distinctly natural, 4 interestingly ambiguous, and 4 very classical in the way they present themselves.

Here is the crazy list of wines we have put together:

  • GABRIO BINI 2015 ZIBBIBO DI PANTELLERIA
  • SEBASTIEN RIFFAULT (we have not yet decided but leaning toward older Sauletas)
  • PARTIDA CREUS GT
  • CORNELISSEN 2015 MUNJEBEL BIANCO IN MAG
  • CHATEAU BERU 2013 CLOS DE BERU CHABLIS
  • CHATEAU LE PUY 2012 St. EMILION
  • EMIDIO PEPE 2012 TREBBIANO
  • MONTENIDOLI 2008 TRIASSICO ROSSO
  • SCHOLIUM 2014 1MN BECHTOLD VINEYARD CALIFORNIA RED WINE
  • SCHOLIUM 2015 LA SEVERITA DI BRUTO FARINA VINEYARDS CALIFORNIA WHITE WINE
  • SCHOLIUM 2015 THE PRINCE IN HIS CAVES FARINA VINEYARDS CALIFORNIA WHITE WINE
  • SCHOLIUM 2016 VLV VISTA LUNA VINEYARDS CALIFORNIA WHITE WINE
