Sometimes to be a natural wine lover or producer in the New World feels a little like joining a cargo cult... we craft our coconut headphones & fell palms to build our flight towers, living & working on organic vineyards, attending to natural ferments.

When I started out in the industry I only had a vague idea of the precious cargo I was waiting to see arrive, thanks to Aaron among others I've now a clearer idea -- but the scars of enclosure & primitive accumulation are livid where I am.

Without wanting to sound like I'm appropriating the truer struggle of BIPOC comrades, where does the work of cultural revival begin (or end) following the genocide of the English-speaking peasantry ?
