10 CAMUTO, ROBERT V. Corkscrewed: Adventures In The New French Wine Country.
University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln: 2010. First Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Robert V. Camuto's interest in wine turned into a passion when he moved to France and began digging into local soils and cellars. Corkscrewed recounts Camuto's journey through France's myriad regionsÑand how the journey brought about a profound change in everything he believed about wine. The world of great wines was once dominated by great Bordeaux ch‰teaux. As those ch‰teaux were bought up by moguls and international corporations, the heart of French winemaking moved into the realm of small producers, whose wines reflect the stunning diversity of regional environment, soil, and cultureÑterroir. In this book we follow Camuto across France as he works harvesting grapes in Alsace, learns about wine and bombs in Corsica, and eats and drinks his way through the world's greatest bacchanalia in Burgundy. Along the route he discovers a new generation of winemakers who have rejected chemicals, additives, and technologically altered wines. His book charts an odyssey into this new world of French wine, a world of biodynamic winegrowing, herbal treatments, lunar cycles, and grape varieties long ago dismissed as "difficult." A celebration of the diversity that makes French wine more than a mere commodity, Camuto's work is a delightful look beyond the supermarket to the various flavors offered by the true vintners of France.

13 COLE, KATHERINE. Voodoo Vintners: Oregon's Astonishing Biodynamic Winegrowers.
Oregon State University Press. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Could cow horns, vortexes, and the words of a prophet named Rudolf Steiner hold the key to producing the most alluring wines in the worldÑand to saving the planet? In Voodoo Vintners, wine writer Katherine Cole reveals the mysteries of biodynamic winegrowing, tracing its practice from Paleolithic times to the finest domaines in Burgundy today. At the epicenter of the American biodynamic revolution are the Oregon winemakers who believe that this spiritual style of farming results in the truest translations of terroir and the purest pinot noirs possible. Cole introduces these "voodoo vintners," examining their motivations and rationalizations and explaining why the need to farm biodynamically courses through their blood. Her engaging narrative answers the call of oenophiles everywhere for more information about this "beyond organic" style of winemaking.
