It's 'hipster wine' if it's rare, odd or organic

January 16, 2013

What is a "hipster wine"? One: It should be hard to find. If you can get it at BevMo or Trader Joes, it ain't it. Two, and I'm not being facetious: It may have certain characteristics that make it difficult for the untrained palate to tell whether it is even wine at all. (For example, orange wine.) Three: It is very likely the result of organic and/or biodynamic farming coupled with non-interventionalist winemaking practices while falling into the category of "natural wine."
