California is one of the world's hotbeds of natural wine. Sure, Napa has its big, conventionally farmed wines. But the state's long tradition of wholistic, back-to-the-earth farming has been embraced by a whole new generation of winemakers, while the trailblazers continue to do what they always did: make wines that reveal California's unique terroir, it's balance of sunny climes, cool and foggy airs, fascinating soils.
