'Alice Feiring Fires Back' or 'Stirring the barrel on your behalf'.
Alice Feiring has been a contradictory figure outspoken from her book, Naked Wine: Letting Grapes Do What Comes Naturally, and continues on this path today. There is very few prominent figures speaking on behalf of wine consumers... willing to make it their career to counter or at least balance the corporate influence on what is produced and sold as wine you and I consume.
The wine market grows in every country every year. Is there any other answer except it's easier today to put together a marketable drink not based on a grape and nature's nourishment but on components better known by a white coated chemist than a grape stained winemaker.
