"A very good book... One of the more balanced and detailed accounts dealing with the issue of sustainable winemaking."- Robert M. Parker, Jr. -- Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate 20111122 "An ocean's worth of savvy detail about both the more (organic farming, the endless shades of sustainability) and less (reverse osmosis, acidification) happy nuances of making wine." San Francisco Chronicle 20110814 "A compelling manifesto for natural wine ... the understandable, everyday terms used make this a genuine guide to wine science for the citizen." -- Brian Elliott Scotland On Sunday 20111130 "'Authentic Wine' performs the invaluable service of raising crucial questions and explaining complicated issues coherently." -- Eric Asimov New York Times 20111213 "It's been a good year for wine books. The most compelling new book is undoubtedly Authentic Wine by Jamie Goode and Sam Harrop." -- Huon Hooke Sydney Morning Herald 20111206 "Ambitiously comprehensive... Illuminating." -- Beverley Blanning Decanter 20120401 "A very well written and useful book with a long shelf life. Once read, it is one to dip in and out of regularly." -- Mary Gorman-McAdams The Kitchn 20111201
