As part of the New York 2016 edition of the fair, we hosted a RAW WINE Speakers’ Corner which saw all sorts of natural wine heroes give talks, tastings and do book signings – sharing their experiences and knowledge to help visitors get to grips with this extraordinary world.
As promised, a while back, we filmed the sessions so that those of you who were unable to attend, could enjoy them from the comfort of your own homes. Unfortunately the technical side of things didn’t quite go to plan and both the image and sound turned out more than a little shoddy. In fact in two cases we have had to ditch the footage altogether – the talk by Isabelle Legeron MW on ‘What is Natural Wine?’ and the talk on Australia – so apologies if you were holding out for either of those two. We have done our best to make the ones below as audible as possible. Next time, we promise we’ll do a much, much better job.
