The inaugural Real Wine Fair will take place in Holborn, London on 20th May, giving wine and food lovers the opportunity to taste over 600 organically or biodynamically produced wines. Tickets are now on sale for £20 per ticket at www.therealwinefair.com. Two wine trade days will follow on Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd. Timings will be 10am-6pm on all three days.
The Real Wine Fair celebrates dedicated individuals who work organically or biodynamically in the vineyards and winery. 150 growers and winemakers will be at the event, presenting over 600 wines.
Visitors to The Real Wine Fair can meet and talk to the growers, whilst having the opportunity to taste a diverse range of honest, terroir-driven wines. Several real wine ‘heroes’ have 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’, Jamie Goode, co-author of ‘Authentic Wine: toward natural and sustainable wine making’.
There will be an exhibition of contemporary paintings and posters as well as artisan food and drink exhibitors, and restaurant stalls selling “street food”.
All of the wines on show at the fair will be available to purchase from an on-site pop-up shop, created specifically for the event.
In association with this event, up to 200 restaurants across the country will be selling real wine by the glass, throughout the month of May. Details of participating restaurants and a full list of producers will be announced in the next fortnight.
