Poetry is Growing in Our Garden collects notes on winemaking and wine drinking from one of the cult figures in natural winemaking, Anders Frederik Steen. They include all the doubts and deviations of any learning process and the work that goes into forming any kind of practice.
Steen started as a sommelier in his native Copenhagen – first at Noma, then opening Relæ and Manfreds – before starting as a winemaker in southern France in 2013. In the eight years since, he has filled notebooks his thoughts on what it means to understand (and misunderstand) wine, taste and pair it, leave the restaurant industry behind, where the balance lies between manual skill and abstract philosophy in a winemaker’s practice, and the technical minutiae of someone deep into his craft.
