Guilty Pleasure Blog RAW The Artisan Wine Fair London 2019
Isabelle Legeron MW, organiser of RAW WINE says that this wine fair is totally independent. “It 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”.

For me this wine festival is a perfect place to be up-to-date with nature friendly production in global aspect. I believe that more wine production should be sustainable and this is the only way for the future of wine “industry”. This year at RAW London I tasted a lot of great wines with perfect nose, tastes and aftertastes. Also the winemakers stories in the bottles are full of hope for our Planet.
