Issue 9, “Behind the Scenes” issue!
INTERVIEWS, ESSAYS & FEATURES
An interview with the first (and only!) natural winemaker in Finland; an essay by Brooklyn wine professional Alex Alan on how post-2020 New York restaurant culture might look; a long, powerful interview with Lauren Friel of Rebel Rebel (Boston) on why natural wine is definitely political and what she’s doing about it; a story about one of our boutique magazine stockists in Stockholm who are making sure that print isn’t dead; the story behind the iconic “Vine Wine Sign”; and a look at how Canada’s hottest new natural winery leverages branding; a feature on Joy Kull aka La Villana (Lazio, Italy); and a photo essay by Twin Island Cider (British Columbia) who documents their own clay harvesting and vessel making process.
THE MAKING OF PIPETTE
This section includes interviews with our editor/publisher Rachel Signer and our layout designer Emma Dragovic, as well as a visual and written look at how a magazine is printed, and why we do it in Germany.
RECIPES FROM NATURAL WINEMAKERS
For Issue 9, we reached out to a few natural winemakers we wish we could visit to see what they’ve been cooking. Recipes include contributions from La Stoppa (Italy); MicroBio Wines (Spain); Martha Stoumen (U.S.); Gut Oggau (Austria); and Alessandro Viola (Sicily).
