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.
Roberson Wine are really proud to be taking part in the event and some of our most interesting winemakers are making the trip over to London to pour their fantastic wines. Most of the leading lights in natural and artisanal wine will be present and it promises to be one of the best tastings of 2012.
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, Drink 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”.
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.
