Wine That’s Not Only Natural, It’s Alive

With a nod to a growing contingent of American natural winemakers, around 25 were represented at the fair, including old favorites of mine like Dirty & Rowdy, which poured a wonderful, mineral-suffused mourvèdre from the Chalone region of California; Donkey & Goat; AmByth Estate (see if you can find its savory 2013 Paso Robles syrah); and Eyrie, now making a trousseau from the Dundee Hills of Oregon.

Newer names for me include Day Wines, making pure Willamette Valley pinot noirs, and Vinca Minor, which makes primarily cabernet sauvignon and carignan wines from old-vine vineyards in California.

“It was powerful, and we feel lucky to have been a part of it,” Jason Charles, Vinca Minor’s owner, said of the fair. “Isabelle is a force, and the community that she has built with RAW is remarkable.”

Raw Wine NYC | November 6th & 7th

We are excited to be participating in Raw Wine in New York City!

  • When: Sunday, November 6 & Monday, November 7th from 10am - 6pm
  • Where: 99 Scott Av in Brooklyn, a 5-minute walk from the L-Train (Jefferson St)
  • What: Taste natural wines from 100's of winemakers from around the world! Trust us, it will be fun!
  • How: Buy Tickets

RAW WINE is a two-day celebration of some of the best wine talent in the world. Featuring over 100 growers, RAW WINE is one of the most exciting collections of fine, natural, organic and biodynamic wine artisans ever to come together in the capital. Their wines are pure, kind to the planet, very possibly better for your health and best of all they're absolutely delicious. 
RAW WINE is a totally independent wine fair created and organised by Isabelle Legeron MW. Taking place annually in London, Berlin and now New York, RAW WINE celebrates wines with emotion. Wines that have a humanlike, or living, presence. They are also wines that are an authentic expression of a place. They are the polar opposite of industrialised, big-brand, manufactured, nothing-but-alcoholic-grape-juice wines, that use imagery and suggestion to sell a product.
RAW WINE is about showcasing growers whose fundamental farming and cellar philosophies make these living wines possible. Many of these wines feature on the lists of the world's best restaurants. They are wines with cult followings and they're here, together, in London, for two days only so that wine lovers, connoisseurs and curious beginners alike can come together and try their wines.
RAW WINE is a platform for bringing these artisans together, as well as their importers; potential importers; the wine producer associations to which they belong; the trade professionals who want to write about them or stock them; and the wine amateurs (or 'ones who love') who would like to discover and drink them.
Welcome to RAW WINE: the astounding world of fine, natural wine.

If you are in town, come say hello, taste and peruse the amazing wines that are being poured by friends and icons. This event is truly the first of its kind - not to be missed!

 

 See you there!
