Description

Celebrated wine writer and journalist Joelle Thomson has brought together eightteen movers, shakers and risk-takers of the New Zealand wine industry and invited them to talk about their achievements, their favourite wines and how they see the industry developing in the future. They make up a wild bunch, described by Joelle as 'philosophers, modernists, scientists, hedonists and party animals', and her collection makes for fascinating reading. All of them have had a powerful impact on New Zealand wine. After all, they have given us Sauvignon Blanc, exported wine around the world, introduced screw caps, pioneered biodynamic and organic winemaking, and spearheaded the production of Pinot Noir in the world's southernmost wine-growing region. And they continue to define the style, quality and value of New Zealand wine today. Contributing interviewees include James Millton, Alan Brady, Sir George Fistonich, Kim and Jeanette Goldwater, Peter Babich, Kevin Judd, Matt Donaldson and Lynette Hudson, Nick Nobilo and ten more.
