RAW wine fair: date for your 2013 diary – 19-20 May

The Truman Brewery in Brick Lane

Isabelle Legeron MW

From Isabelle Legeron MW:
RAW's  2nd edition of its artisan wine fair in Spitalfields, Central London: 19th-20th May:

'Located a short distance from Liverpool Street, Shoreditch High Street (Overground station) and the City, RAW 2013 has a lot to live up to. Described as “pure, unabashed taste bud titillation”, “buzzing”, and “unmissable” by those who attended in 2012, this 2nd edition certainly has a lot to live up to. We are determined to make RAW 2013 even more exciting and thought-provoking than the last.

The new dates for your diary are:
Sunday 19th & Monday 20th May 2013As last year, we have timed the fair to coincide with the London International Wine & Spirit Fair so that wine professionals already attending the trade fair in Excel will also be able to explore the extraordinary world of fine natural wine while in town.

It's not just the wines that are unusual!

Sunday will be open to all – trade and consumers alike.
Monday will be open to the trade during the day and will be open to consumers in the early evening. Details to be announced in due course.

If you are a grower or importer keen to join in, and your wines comply with RAW’s Charter of Quality, then please do get in touch. 

Similarly if you are a restaurant or artisan food producer who would like to join in, let us know. 
For everyone else, watch this space. We have lots of exciting plans for 2013.

For those of you who have not yet had the pleasure of getting to know RAW, here's a bit about us: 

RAW is a two-day celebration of some of the best natural wine talent in the world, featuring some 200 growers and over 1000 wines.
RAW is committed to empowering all wine drinkers through real, informed choice and transparency. 
RAW is unprocessed. It is about truth, authenticity and frank wine talking, but most of all it's about showcasing really good wine.
Who is behind the fair? 
RAW is an Isabelle Legeron MW creation dedicated to showcasing the extraordinary men and women who produce fine, natural wine. We are a totally independent wine event open to all. 
A fair for professional wine buyers too! 
RAW is a fair for both the general public and professionals. It showcases wines already imported into the UK, as well as new discoveries. Some of the artisans attending will be actively looking for an importer and any buyers looking for new producers will be able to explore those 'seeking representation' online and in the fair catalogue.' 

It is not yet known whether Isabelle will again be going head to head with the naturists from Guildford – Douglas Wregg, Eric Narioo and the rest of Les Caves de Pyrène equipe.
