Jamie Goode and Monty Waldin

I'm rapidly running out of writing time on this lovely Monday morning. So, rather than rush something to the presses I thought I'd instead send you all to the fine interview Jamie Goode recently conducted with Monty Waldin, who is one of the wine world's leading authorities on biodynamics. Among other things, Jamie and Monty discuss geopolitics, Nicolas Joly and, of course, cows and the moon. Be sure to read through to the end of Jamie's piece, where you'll find links to the previous nine segments of his ongoing series on biodynamics and wine.

By the way, Monty's benchmark book, Biodynamic Wines, seems to have gone the way of all too many of the titles in the Mitchell Beazley Classic Wine Library -- through a smallish single printing then directly out of print. As a result, the few remaining copies for sale seem to have landed in the hands of rare book sellers. Nonetheless, it's well worth the investment if you're up for a splurge.
