Raw Wine Fair London 8th & 9th March. Raw Wine Week 4th -11th March
2020 sees the ninth RAW WINE London returning to The Store X in Covent Garden, with over 120 carefully selected low-intervention organic, biodynamic and natural wine producers from around the world showcasing their fine drinks to the trade and consumers.
Alongside the natural wine strongholds of France and Italy, RAW WINE is excited to welcome a trio of northern European producers to London for the first time. A wine producer from the Netherlands who has farmed organically for decades and eliminated all copper and sulphur usage from the vineyard; an urban, natural wine producer from Finland; and a Danish distillery that crafts sell-out seasonal spirits and was described by Wired as “the Noma of wonderful booze”!
Trailblazer of the natural wine movement worldwide, Isabelle Legeron MW’s portfolio of events now includes sell-out fairs in New York, L.A, Montréal, Berlin and London. All promote wines farmed cleanly that are harvested by hand and made without excessive use of processing and additives. Visitors to the fair will also have the unique opportunity to listen to experts from around the world impart their knowledge in RAW WINE’s intimate Speaker’s Corner.
With sustainability the hottest topic in food and drink right now, RAW WINE London is the perfect place to discover wines which are better for us and the environment. Fighting for greater transparency in the wine industry, in order to empower wine drinkers through authenticity and frank wine conversation, Isabelle says, “Wine has never been made with so many pesticides, additives, preservatives and processes. Winemakers at RAW WINE who respect life above ground and in the soil care passionately about their wines, they ensure their vines are able to absorb key nutrients and it shows in the quality of the final product. By buying organic, biodynamic and natural wine, we’re helping to protect the planet.”
RAW WINE London is the highlight of #rawwineweek, 4th-11th March, a nationwide celebration of natural wines with tutored tastings, glass offers and winemaker dinners. Throughout the week restaurants, bars, wine shops, distributors and importers will all be hosting events to showcase growers exhibiting at the fair.
