Under the Sky We Make by Kimberley Nicholas PhD 

Kimberley Nicholas is a wine buff who grew up on her family vineyard in Sonoma. Now Associate Professor of Sustainability Science at Lund University in Sweden, she wrote her PhD at Stanford on the effects of climate change on the California wine industry. Subtitled ‘How to be human in a warming world’, her accessible book explains how all of us can play a part in effecting significant and lasting lifestyle changes to help tackle climate change. Nicholas also examines how climate change is affecting the notion of terroir and explains why the taste of Sonoma Pinot Noir has changed forever.

The Truffle Hunters

Stunning cinematography will transport you to the misty forests and vineyards of Northern Italy in this soulful documentary. Meet the traditional Piedmontese truffle hunters, who live in harmony with the land – alongside their faithful truffle hounds – making wine, growing vegetables and foraging in the countryside for white Alba truffles. This homespun and rapidly disappearing way of life has a simplicity that’s completely at odds with the luxury market for truffles. A compelling and moving film.

On current release in US cinemas, coming soon to the UK.
