Since Alex Kongsgaard and I made our Tour of the Northern Lands this Spring, I have been thinking much about the nature of natural wines. What perfect topic for Metaphysical Lectures. What he and I pondered to a high degree was not "What are they?" in the sense of how are they made-- but "What are they?" in the sense of what is behind them? Behind their makers-- what drives them? And behind their buyers-- what is driving the new ascendance of these wines?
I will talk, you will ask questions and make comments, and all the while, we will drink wines that are delicious and illustrative.
At Vinology-- 2314 Bissonnet St, Houston, TX 77005.
Please arrive promptly at 6. You may come early if you wish. We will begin drinking and thinking together right at 6:05.
