My piece on Renaissance Winery, the doomsday cult that started it, and Gideon Beinstock (one of California’s OG natural winemakers and who left the cult about ten years ago) is now up on @sprudgewine with some words of context from @alice.feiring. Here are the 🐪camels🐫 the cult keeps on their property, these cuties didn’t make the cut sadly. Slide into my DMs if you want more camel pix. Link up top. ~
Interestingly, Gideon Beinstock’s name has been consistently misspelled by major writers for over a decade now including @jbonne and @leviopenswine. Holy moly, people!
Clos Saron at @brumairesf showing us what the past & the future of natural wine can look (and taste) like. @singanipapi once called Clos Saron “California’s Overnoy” and I’m not going to disagree. Keep an eye out for my recap on @sprudgewine, coming out in the next week or so!
