Vitovska grganja or garganja is an old indigenous white variety, grown in Vipavska dolina (Vipavska valley) and Kras in Slovenia and Carso in Italy (Friuli). It is very resistant to drought, which makes the variety perfect for Kras/Carso environment. It gives elegant, complex, not very aromatic wine, with moderate alcohol levels, which makes it fresh and perfect to enjoy, being accompanied with food, or not. The grape is often used for production of orange wines (maceration).

206 natural wine artisans, organic Cognac and beer, sake made of organic rise, excellent salmon, oysters, cheeses, cakes, coffee … Isabelle Legeron and her team succeeded in organization of truly great event, praising non-interventional approach to cultivation of vineyard and production of wine. I was there both days with my friend Andrej, great connoisseur of good food and wine and we really had a great time. I also visited TheRealWineFair on Tuesday and found very similar picture there with almost 200 artisans there as well.

I first met her during my visit to VinNatur fair in Vicenza (Villa Favorita) end of March this year. I knew Isabelle Legeron from her fantastic TV shows. I particularly loved her Georgia coverage.

After checking her and the RAW websites I was sure I must go to London this year.
