Begun in London in 2012, the natural wine fair RAW has dramatically grown in producer participation and consumer attendance. RAW is a wonderful opportunity for you to join the industry in tasting a bounty of natural wines. We consider it THE PLACE to see what the natural wine revolution is all about. Not only because the winemakers themselves are there to talk to you about what they do, and pour you tastes of their delicious creations, but because there is a vibe of excitement that the wine world is changing and brimming with talent. As long as you purchase your tickets before they sell out, this is a place of discovery with so many great producers proudly pouring in one location.

Jenny and Francois have 9 growers at the fair, and in celebration, we also have a ton of dinners and tastings planned in addition to the weekend’s grand tasting. 2Naturkinder, Muster, Gut Oggau, Strekov, FruktStereo, Koppitsch, Swick, Donkey & Goat, and Armonia will all be pouring at the fair, and Krista Scruggs will debut her first commercial release!

Here’s a list of all the events we have set up so far. (Also, if you have questions about natural wines, then we have answers!)
