Natural Wine Evangelist Isabelle Legeron Takes Raw Wine Fair On The Road

November 1, 2017

By Richard Martin, Food Republic

Isabelle Legeron is the author of Natural Wine and founder of Raw Wine fair, which is on its way to New York and Los Angeles in coming weeks.

She’s natural wine’s evangelist, and now Isabelle Legeron is taking her show on the road. The London-based French-born Master of Wine who, as we put it several years back, wrote the book on natural wine (an updated edition was just published), has turned her Raw Wine Fair into a traveling showcase for the world’s most radical winemakers. Of course, Legeron and her ilk don’t see these folks as rebels, but rather as traditionalists who make wine the way it was made for centuries, by fermenting organically grown and harvested grapes without any trickery. No sulfites. No filtering. As little intervention as possible. These are the standards for the 100-plus wine brands participating in Raw Wine in New York November 5-6, and in Los Angeles November 12-13 (more information and tickets are available here). Here, Legeron tells us why natural wine is better for us and for the environment, and touches on the fair, her book and her philosophies.
