RAW or REAL?
As an alternative to the monotonous industrial wine of the supermarket routine the growing natural wine movement is splashing out two events in London this Sunday the 20th. Tickets are £20, but you get access to over 800 wines for that, definitely value for money, and an opportunity to meet famous winemakers, eat some artisan food, live music, etc. To do our bit to entice you to come we are doing a competition to win a free case of natural wine (6 bottles) with delivery to your home. All you have to do to enter is to buy a ticket come to one of our tables and leave your details there.
Incredible natural wines from the above regions will be at the Real Wine Fair in Bloomsbury, London. Amoreira da Torre, Bonjardim and Morgadio da Calcada will be showing their best. Come and taste some wines and meet the winemakers as well as enjoying the wider natural wine community, writers, films, music and food. http://therealwinefair.com/
Come meet the growers.
RAW is a two-day celebration of some of the best wine talent in the world. Featuring over 180 growers, RAW will be one of the most exciting collections of fine, natural wine artisans ever to come together in the capital. They are pure, kind to the planet, very possibly better for your health and best of all they’re absolutely delicious.
RAW is leading the charge for transparency. We believe that in an ideal wine world, any processing and additives will be clearly communicated to the drinker so that you know exactly what is in your glass. RAW is a first step in this direction – we will clearly list all additives and processing on both the website and fair catalogue. We are proud to be leading the way.
RAW is committed to empowering all wine drinkers through real, informed choice. RAW is unprocessed. It is about truth, authenticity and frank wine talking, but most of all it’s about showcasing really good wine.
One of the top UK wine writers was impressed with organic Vinho Verdes, especially the red ones!
