"Between Pérez's photographs and Hodgins' write-up, I really wanted to spend a day with Amy Butler (Ranchero Cellars), taste some of her gamey-feral Carignan, watch her eyebrows shoot up in surprise. I wanted to sit and listen to John Munch (of Le Cuvier), with his English literature degree in early West Saxon poetry and his white beard, talking about low sulphates and wild yeast. I wanted to meet Christian Tietje (ex owner of Cypher and owner of newly created Anarchy Wine Company), who drove André Ostertag around San Francisco in a battered old pick-up truck with a park bench for a seat and who made wine in a surf shack in his back garden. Hodgins and Pérez are gestalt."
