RAW London: Sunday 18th and Monday 19th May

RAW London is on Sunday 18th and Monday 19th May@ The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane. The entrances to use are near the corner of Brick Lane and Hanbury Street. 
'RAW London
The big weekend is upon us so don't forget to buy your tickets online (it's cheaper and like that you'll be sure not to miss out) or register yourself for free as press or trade (remember though we are very strict with these free places so make sure you are eligible first!)

RAW, London's artisan wine fair, is back in town with 150+ artisan drinks producers descending on the capital this Sunday & Monday. Join us for a celebration of the world of unprocessed, authentic wine production!

Committed to empowering all wine drinkers through real, informed choice, you’ll only find honest frank talking at RAW. Transparency is key and our creator Isabelle Legeron MW has ensured this ethos transfers to every element of the show, from wine to beer to tea to food, making it the place to discover a community of people all working towards the same purpose.

Highlights of the show include:
1000 different natural, biodynamic and organic wines by more than 150 growers from 18 different countries, some not available anywhere else in the UK. You can even sample two exclusive wines by Bordelais grower Château le Puy (Stand 125), who sent two barrels to sea under sail, to measure the impact that traditional forms of transport have on wine’s maturity. The bottles, which accompanied them have recently returned to Europe’s shores after pitstops in Brazil and the Caribbean and their UK importer, Dynamic Vines, is showing them at RAW (check out the 'sneak peeks' below for Isabelle's comparative tasting notes of the two wines).

Limited number of copies of Isabelle Legeron’s forthcoming book, Natural Wine: An introduction to organic and biodynamic wines made naturally available to purchase (not available in the shops until July)
Food from some of London’s most exciting restaurants including Elliot’s, Peckham Bazaar and Antidote as well as artisan food producers

The RAW Wine Shop run by Wapping wine bar Victualler where you’ll be able to purchase some of your favourite bottles.
Artisan gin, sake, tea and coffee, including an exciting last minute addition – Square Mile! These fine coffee roasters, from east London, are joining the Elliot’s team at their RAW pop-up to lead a series of cupping and tasting sessions of terroir coffees from around the world. So come along and explore the wonders of single origin, proper filter coffees and the impact that different roasting and brewing techniques can have on taste.
