OnMilwaukee, Lori Fredrich, Matt Mueller, Allison Kruse, Bradley Kruse

 Natural wine is definitely having a moment. But what is it? How is it different from “regular” wine? And why is it swiftly becoming one of the most sought-after categories in the beverage market? 

On this week’s podcast, we’re going deep with Allison and Bradley Kruse, owners of Nonfiction Natural Wines, about exactly that. We delve into the world of natural wines, a tradition of wine-making that’s been around for centuries, but which saw a resurgence in France during the 1990s. We discuss the processes that make natural wine, the qualities that distinguish it and the reasons why it’s so popular among a new generation of wine drinkers. Along the way, we attempt to dispel some of the myths surrounding the natural wine trend, hone in on some of the reasons to get excited about it, and offer listeners tips and tricks on purchasing, storing and enjoying some of the most interesting wines on the market.

Be sure to stay tuned for the Spirited Second, a special Bar Month feature with Brandon Reyes of Bittercube Bar & Bazaar. This week, we’re sampling a rare riff on Chicago’s favorite shot, Malort, and talking about the role of wormwood in spirits.
