As we gear up for the last month of preparations for RAW WINE London, we are delighted to say that RAW WINE Vienna’s site is now live and tickets on sale. So to celebrate we have created an Easter Egg Hunt just for you… See below for details.
Inscriptions for both fairs are now closed (although not all the growers are up on the website yet!) and, thanks to an overwhelming number of requests, we will now be welcoming over 80 artisan growers to RAW WINE Vienna. Some are not currently imported into Austria so if you are an importer, don’t forget to explore our ‘seeking representation’ filter to see who you might be able to pick up at the fair.
There has been huge interest in Vienna and since visitor numbers are limited (compared to London), please do make sure you buy tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. It is also important to note that, unlike London, the wine trade cannot visit for free so please buy your discounted tickets online now.
London, we have not forgotten about you! With over 140 wine artisans attending in person, and a raft of brilliant new other proper drinks to add to the menu, it’s going to be as good as ever. Sake’s back but so too is gin distilled in a front room in north London, teas from tiny artisan growers (some of whom have tea ‘gardens’ that consist of a single tree!) and even a Beer Corner with unfiltered brews from Hackney, Bermondsey and Kensington.
We’ve also got great food stalls lined up again this year, the exact details of which will be added to our food section online early next week. Those who attended RAW WINE 2013 are back in force, albeit with a few tweaks. The tartines served up by Soho’s Antidote, for example, will be made using the knowhow of Michelin-starred chef Mikael Jonsson who now designs their menus, while the wonderful team at Elliot’s will be cooking up a storm with their new pop-up Natural Wine Bar, offering wines by the glass and unique homemade cocktails alongside great grub.
Finally there will also be a selection of RAW WINE food newbies including Swiss unpasteurised cheeses by Jumi and an outdoor mangal grill by Peckham Bazaar, rated one of the most exciting restaurant openings of 2013. So look out for sizzling souvlaki, sea bream fillet wraps and something delicious for veggies. So get cracking and register for free if you are in the wine trade or the press, or else buy your London tickets here.
In the meantime we wish you all a very happy Easter from all of us in team RAW WINE.
As with any good Easter Egg Hunt, there are the hidden treasures of course – in the form of exciting wines you may not know about – but there is also a prize to be won: a pair of Sunday entry tickets to your fair of choice – be it RAW WINE London or RAW WINE Vienna!
How to Play
Hidden amongst the growers attending London and/or Vienna are artisans that produce their fine, quaffable wines in egg-shaped vessels – either qvevri/kvevri, tinajas or concrete eggs. So the question is who?
Rules of the Hunt
Since new growers are being added all the time, we have decided to simplify things. Rather than having to find them all, you only need to find 6. Make sure you include the name of the grower and the type of ‘egg’ that they use, to be in for a chance to win.
The Hunt is taking place on our Facebook feed (click here for more info). All guesses should be submitted in the comments section on the ‘Easter Egg Hunt’ post.
Ready, steady, go!
