Ron Washam, he of the comedic bent, has a new tagline on his Hosemaster of Wine site which I quite like: "Any food product that feels compelled to tell you its natural in all likelihood is not." That's from Michael Pollan.
Don't miss the wonderful piece on Mike Benziger and Benziger Family Winery's long history of water conservation and recycling in the new magazine Valley of the Moon.
You might also be interested in reading Jonah Raskin's piece on water in the same magazine; I am quoted briefly, but more importantly, it's actual journalism about local water use. (Compare to non--coverage in Napa Valley Register and minimal coverage in Sonoma's Press Democrat.)
This magazine looks to be one of substance, even though it's supported by realtors' ads for expensive homes. Subscriptions are $20 or you can read it online. Personally I think it's worth subscribing to.
JACK LONDON VIDEO
And while we're on the subject of Sonoma Valley (the Valley of the Moon) and Benziger here's another link worth checking out: Mike Benziger featured in a video news story on Jack London Ranch, a slightly different take on the famous writer and his Beauty Ranch, where London wanted to become a leader in and showcase healthy farming practices - just like the Benzigers next door do today.
