The Modern Bar Cart Podcast

Nov 14, 2019

Some of the topics we discuss in this fascinating natural wine interview with Joey Fox of Old Westminster Winery.

  • What the term “natural wine” really means - and what you can expect from wines that fall into this category.
  • How Joey worked his way into the natural wine world by way of tea, then coffee, then restaurants, then organic vegetable farming.
  • How native yeast fermentation, lack of chemical additives and preservatives, and lack of fining and filtration can wildly impact the flavor profile of a wine.
  • What the terms “skin contact,” “orange wine,” and pet nat” mean, and why you’re going to start hearing these terms a lot more
  • How natural winemaking practices can take a grape that’s usually used to make “cougar juice” (AKA Pinot Grigio), and turn it into something extremely refined and food friendly.
  • Which sparkling wine pre-dates Champagne by over 200 years.
  • And much, much more.
