Tired of supermarket ‘plonk’? Hanker for something more natural than your usual tipple? Time to tantalise your tastebuds at the RAW Artisan Wine Fair…
RAW, the UK’s largest organic and biodynamic wine fair, is returning to London’s Truman Brewery from 17th to 18th May. Get ahead of the regular Pinot and Melot crowd by discovering some of the natural artisan wines making a bid for the top restaurants and retailers this year.
Open to both trade and public, amateurs and experts, you’ll be able to sample wines lovingly created by 160 producers from around the world. Organiser and natural wine expert Isabelle Legeron is passionate about organic and biodynamic wines, and wants to bring natural artisan wine to the masses. She is an award-winning wine taster and consults for top restaurants including a Michelin-starred Mayfair eaterie and an eco-luxury tourism initiative in St Kitts.
Chat to the producers themselves, all of whom are passionate about their craft and their product. These are wines that are shaped by their natural terrain, not chemicals. They are purer, kinder to the planet, better for your health (as much as wine can be!), but most of all, they are delicious!
And just so you don’t drink on an empty stomach, you can grab a bite to eat at the artisan food stalls also exhibiting.
