The Real Wine Fair Tasting Event (20-22 May)
The inaugural Real Wine Fair is a wine tasting event, celebrating skilled individuals who work organically or biodynamically in the vineyards and winery. Over 170 growers and winemakers will be presenting over 600 wines, made as naturally as possible. Visitors to The Real Wine Fair can meet and talk to the winegrowers, whilst having the opportunity to taste a diverse range of honest, terroir-driven wines.
Several real wine ‘heroes’ have also been lined up for a series of seminars and debates, including Alice Feiring, author of ‘Naked Wine: Letting grapes do what comes naturally’ and Wine Anorak’s, Jamie Goode, co-author of ‘Authentic Wine: toward natural and sustainable wine making’, and Jonathan Nossiter who will be showing the 10 part series of his world famous film ‘Mondovino’.
Food, Drinks, and Art:
There will be an exhibition of contemporary paintings and posters from Michel Tolmer (artist of the RWF’s logo) on wine-related themes which will be on display in one of the tasting rooms. Additionally there will be stalls dedicated to artisan food & drink, and others, manned by leading London restaurants, selling “street food”.
Pop Up Shop:
Many of the wines on show at the fair will also be available to purchase from an on-site, pop up shop created specifically for the event.
