Alice Feiring, wine writer, blogger and fearless champion of natural wines, started her own subscription newsletter last year. Focused on natural wines — “real wines for real and thirsty drinkers,” the newsletter is $65 for 10 issues a year.
Followers of her blog The Feiring Line admire her sharp writing and most likely won’t need to be persuaded to read her in long form. She’s also published two books: "The Battle for Wine and Love" (Harcourt) and Naked Wine (Perseus Books).
But for those unfamiliar with Feiring and hesitant to pull the trigger on a subscription, she’s just put up a sample issue — the entire October issue of “The Feiring Line: The Real Wine Newsletter,” her first.
