Luminarias: John Buechsenstein
Depending on whom you ask, terroir - that “taste of place” that makes a Bordeaux taste like a Bordeaux, or a Rhône like a Rhône - might be one of the most defining characteristics of a wine, or it might be a flat-out myth.
Everyone has an opinion on the controversial topic of terroir, and wine educator John Buechsenstein‘s new book Wine and Place: A Terroir Reader is out to make sense of it all. Co-edited with wine writer Tim Patterson, Wine and Place is a collection of voices and points of view from a diverse cross-section of the wine world. From winemakers to wine critics, from science to literature, this comprehensive anthology lets readers come to their own conclusions about terroir. Join SHED in the Grange for a conversation with the author (and a glass of wine, of course!) as part of the Luminarias series, hosted in collaboration with the Healdsburg Literary Guild.
