Program Notes: Mighty Wines. Alice Feiring on Holiday Wines Today we’re talking with wine blogger and journalist Alice Feiring, whose writings make an argument for wine authenticity through adherence to old techniques. While she has very strong opinions on all things wine, she is particularly passionate about the organic, biodynamic and natural wine movements. Alice received a James Beard award for a New York Times feature on the many ways wine can be manipulated and she is the author of The Battle for Wine and Love: or How I Saved the World from Parkerization; and Living with Wine – which she wrote with Samantha Nestor.
