About the event

Join us in the museum lobby for an evening book signing of The World in a Wineglass: The Insider’s Guide to Artisanal, Sustainable, Extraordinary Wines to Drink Now with the author and Executive Wine Editor for Food & Wine, Ray Isle.

Guests will have the opportunity to taste wines from several sustainable wineries featured in the book.

Isle explains sustainability, organic viticulture and winemaking, biodynamics, regenerative agriculture, and why wineries choose to certify or not to certify those practices. He also dissects the natural wine movement, which he describes as neither liking categorization nor certification, and yet—for all the attention paid to it—representing a “truly miniscule fraction of the wine sold in the world.
