If you’re a drinker who’s always wondered where all the craft wines are then you need to buy this book, which doesn’t just tell you, but also brings them to life with stories and food ideas.

Victoria Moore, Daily Telegraph

A brilliant, beautifully designed, and timely book. Jane Anson has written an essential portrait of today’s world of organic, biodynamic and natural wine by highlighting the people, passions, and bottles that count with her characteristic sensitivity and style.

Finally a book that celebrates wines as they should be - heroic, alive, respectful the land and the simplicity of good taste
Francis Mallmann, Chef


Jane is one of the rare writers on wines who captures the essence of her subject without resorting to winespeak, sharing her expertise with irresistible enthusiasm, approachability and authority.  More than a reference book, this gem takes a fresh look at the world of hand-crafted wines and their journey from terroir to cellar 
Michel Roux, O.B.E.
