In the current issue of Town & Country is an article I wrote on why so many wine people are brandishing their corkscrews over what is a natural wine and whether they are intrinsically bad, good or somewhere in between. It's complicated.

On Friday, I traveled to Foxborough to interview CBS sports commentator Jim Nantz and wine importer and distributor Peter Deutsch about their new joint venture - the establishing of a new Sonoma-based brand of wines named "The Calling." We sampled the first releases, a Dutton Ranch Charbonnay and a Rio Lago Cabernet, and discussed what they've been thinking since they met by chance - or was it chance? - at a Greenwich restaurant a few short years ago. Read the full story next week in The Daily Meal.
