"Isle's writing is poetic but never precious, and he focuses on vintners as people, showing how their personalities joyfully come through in their wines. For the one-third of Americans who consume wine regularly, Isle offers helpful direction on how to choose bottles thoughtfully." --Booklist

"Isle's lively guide will help you find delicious, environmentally friendly offerings for the holiday season and beyond." --People

"Ray Isle is not only one of the most knowledgeable guys in the wine world, but he also has the taste and discrimination to steer us towards the very best producers of the Old World and the New World--specifically those who are producing distinctive, value-driven, exciting, and environmentally sensitive wines that transmit their place of origin. This is one of the most useful and elegantly written wine books to come along in years." --Jay McInerney

"With authority and charm, Ray Isle leads readers brilliantly into the world of organic, sustainable, biodynamic, regenerative farming, and also explains what the hell natural wine actually is. This book is for the curious wine drinker looking for both up-and-coming and familiar names in the wine world. I truly enjoyed reading it. Cheers!" --Aldo Sohm, Wine director of Le Bernardin and author of Wine Simple

"A joy of discovery... Isle has pulled off a rare feat in the world of wine writing, presenting a book as relevant for those just getting into wine as it is for connoisseurs. An extremely engaging, thoughtful treatise on how to make every bottle count."
