Augereau traveled France, working with growers and winemakers, learning from them and writing about them, their virtues, their practices. She’s released numerous publications cataloguing the natural wine movement from its origins to today including “mon carnet de vigne,” “soif d’Aujourd’hui,” and “collaborations,” among many articles and interviews. Then she founded La Dive in 2000 as the capstone of promoting these small producers and giving a showcase for their wines. This festival of natural wine brings together 250 producers, all friends now, to celebrate and share in a cave and fields overlooking the Loire.
