Explore the natural wine movement – join us for tapas + wine tastings as we view Living Wine.
Living Wine follows the journeys of natural winemakers in Northern California, during the largest wildfire season on record. Equal parts farmer, winemaker, and artist, they stay true to their ideals creating wines made through innovative, sustainable, and regenerative farming, and without chemical additives. Eschewing the industrial agricultural practices of the corporate wine industry – our winemakers are healing the very environment they are surviving, i.e. a changing climate marked by rising temperatures, shorter growing seasons, and more frequent and virulent wildfires.
We meet our three main subjects and learn about their inspirations and techniques: In Sonoma Country, we follow Darek Trowbridge, a regenerative farmer and winemaker who comes from a legacy winemaking family in California, but rejects their modern corporate winemaking ways. Megan Bell is from Santa Cruz, also formally educated, but then starts her own natural wine business to pursue a more fulfilling path than working within the corporate industrial wine complex. And, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Gideon Beinstock is a master winemaker who farms his vineyards with techniques he learned from artisan winemakers in France…Gideon makes wine as a pure expression of place.
