Public: win a bottle of wine!

Nika WineryGotsa Wines & Naotrebi, all tiny growers from Georgia who will be attending RAW WINE London in person, have each kindly donated a wine so that 3 lucky winners will be able to take home a bottle after the fair. All are traditional qvevri wines made from indigenous, Georgian grape varieties. Qvevris (also known as Kvevris) are large clay pots buried underground that are used for fermenting and maturing wines in Georgia. They are ubiquitous throughout Georgia and are believed to be amongst the oldest winemaking vessels in the world. This extraordinary heritage (both vessel and the winemaking know-how it entails) is today recognised by UNESCO as part of the world’s Intangible Cultural Heritage. All those who have bought tickets to RAW WINE will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win the bottle. So if you don’t yet have your ticket, buy it now.
