First up, I talked with the founder of Natural Born Wine, Oli and Sam. They began their wine importing company three years ago, a career shift for both of them (they came from a writing background). I love their story of how they got into this path, which is unexpected and delightful, and we talk about what it means for a wine to be a natural wine, and the principles behind wines that are biodynamic.
I also talked with Tom Calver of Westcombe Dairy. Westcombe’s beloved Cheddar is made in Somerset, England (the area that’s home of Cheddar cheese!). He and I talk in their Cheddar maturation cave about what it means to make cheese with raw milk, the concept of farming with flavor, and why he’s not a cheese elitist.
In this episode, I wove together the wine and cheese interviews because I wanted to make a connection between these two seemingly very different products and the paralleled issues they face of agricultural principles, taste, quality and the larger values at play.
I hope you enjoy the episode!
