Opening Sentence of the Day: Voodoo Vintners

In September 1982, Moe Momtazi sat on a motorcycle with his heart in his throat and his hands gripping the waist of a drug runner.
-- Voodoo Vintners: Oregon's Astonishing Biodynamic Winegrowers by Katherine Cole. Any book about wine making that starts out like this should be good!

OSU Press sent this to me and it has piqued my interest.  Rowan Jacobsen had a very interesting chapter on biodynamic wine making in California in American Terroir: Savoring the Flavors of Our Woods, Waters, and Fields, reviewed here.  I want to learn more, especially about what is going on here in Oregon.

  1. Wow! What a beginning.

  2. Yes that is one catchy opening line.

  3. Wow -- it definitely caught my attention. I want to know more too.
