Here’s how tired I am: I nearly wrote “sneak peaks.”
I’m exhausted! It’s the middle of harvest here in the Loire Valley, where I am working for the wonderful Mosse family in Anjou. (More on that soon.) While traveling all summer, I’ve managed to put together an entire magazine. There are some really complex, in-depth features in Terre Magazine Issue 1, which is now for sale on our website. Here’s a few of just the tiniest glimpses at what’s between the covers:
- Deirdre Heekin of Vermont’s La Garagista delivers profound thoughts about hybrid grapes, with her signature prose style
- One of Italy’s most prominent natural wine consultants, who is also making his own first vintage, is profiled
- A first-person “day in the life” of one of the U.S.’s most exciting natural wine bars
- The “beyond Pinot Noir” movement in Oregon
- Cheesemaking and why terroir is a marketing scheme
- How one Long Island winery made its first pét-nat
That’s only part of what’s in Issue 1. And you should see the artwork. We’ve collaborated with super talented painters, photographers, and illustrators around the world, and our designer is currently putting the finishing touches on the layout, all of which has happened via my talented artistic co-founders, Erika DaSilva and Katie June Burton.

And now, back to bottling some Chenin Blanc. (It’s a rainy day, so it’s cellar work time here . . .)
