In a parallel universe, the natural wine movement (as distinct from the organically grown wine movement) is taking off with the premiere of Wines From Here, a new film from the Winobrothers debuting Aug. 25 in SF. Here's the trailer:

Alas, much of the natural winemaking movement hasn't been taking certified organically sourced grapes That Seriously. But some of my favorite winemakers who are are in the film including Alex Davis from Porter Creek (maker of my favorite Pinot Noir), Kevin Kelley of Natural Process Alliance, and Josh Jensen of Calera, along with Mike Dashe. Alex, Kevin and Josh are all committed to using 100% certified organic or biodynamic grapes and wineries. Which I like.
Here are their interviews:
