The Language of Wine: In conversation with Eric Asimov and Stephen Satterfield

ARENI Global: In Conversation

This week New York-based wine marketer Erica Nonni facilitates a conversation between Eric Asimov and Stephen Satterfield about the language of wine. Eric Asimov is the New York Times’ Wine Critic. His weekly column appears in the Food section of The Times. He is also the author of How to Love Wine: A Memoir and Manifesto, and Wine With Food: Pairing Notes and Recipes From The New York Times. Stephen Satterfield is a food writer, multimedia producer and founder of Whetstone Magazine, a beautiful publication about food origins, culture and the anthropology of food. These two leading voices in the wine industry share a curiosity and sense of responsibility when it comes to how we communicate around the complex topic of wine. Does language provide or hinder access to wine information? How does it relate to the assessment of wine and to regionalism, fundamental to traditional wine producing areas? Should there be a universal language in wine? This conversation, which took place at the July 2020 edition of Fine Minds 4 Fine Wines, touches upon so much more than language, not just how we talk about wine, but the greater impact it has on our culture.
