RAW fair 2013

Posted on
16. May, 2013

A year passed and RAW fair 2013 is just around the corner. It will be great to meet old friends from natural wine world again and I really look forward to making new ones. It was first organized last May by Isabelle Legeron, MW and her team and it was total success. Not just hundreds of pristine wines from all over the world, but also sake, cider, beer … artisan cheeses and bread, excellent oysters and salmon, perfect coffee. And this was not the end. There were great talks, discussions, guided tastings as well. 

I’ve had the privilege to get to know Isabelle much better in the meanwhile, which is why I am absolutely sure, this year’s event will be even better. I’m glad and proud Slovenia will present some of the traditional foodstuffs on Sunday, May 19, beside having some really great wines from Mlečnik, Čotar, Batič, Klabjan, Klinec, Štekar and Nando on the main part of the fair. Many other talks are going to be held both days including “Wine grapes authors’ picks” by Jancis Robinson MW, Julia Harding MW and Dr. José Vouillamoz.

The main part though, will still be the tasting of new and also old vintages of natural wines from old and new world, from traditional to more exotic wine producing countries. More than 170 growers, which means 600 or more wines, made with almost no intervention, be it chemical or mechanical. It is great to see the number of people who have at least tasted some natural wines, growing year after year. Events like this help big time! I’ve been very active in promoting, importing and selling these pristine grape ferments in Slovenia for the last couple of years and I am really glad to see growing number of people enjoying them. It’s simple, actually. Good examples of natural wine have stronger local (terroir) character, often incredibly concentrated flavour and complexity and as such bring much more pleasure to the consumer. Of course, not all of these wines are sound and good and that’s why RAW fair and similar events play such an important role.

There will be information on added (or not) sulfites or any other stuff or intervention for all wines presented at RAW fair.

I just can’t wait!
