Organic Wines are growing at 22.1% per year (Nielsen Scantrack) compared to the rather dismal general UK wine growth and they are associated with a younger ‘more environmentally caring’ generation of 21-35 years. These two facts in their own right suggests that Organic, Natural, and Biodynamic (O.N.B.) wines need a hard look at. Who better to discuss with than Isabelle Legeron – author, Master of Wine, award winning taster and RAW wine fair founder.
Organic Wines are growing, and so are the number of establishments serving organic food. These outlets may not market themselves as organic but they care about what goes through their kitchen, on the plate as much as their customers do. Careful food sourcing should equal careful drinks sourcing – it just makes sense according to Isabelle.
