It was hectic but I managed to capture a few actual shots of the wines over two days. From Mexico to Georgia, Austria to Italy, and the US of course, the #rawwinefair covered good ground. I still have much to learn about this category of wines and winemaking; some were delicious, some less so (not pictured here), but they all made me think about farming methods, the philosophy behind sustainability and wine making and what counts as good wine. I do know that it should be more than a passing trend. .
#rawwineweek The Raw Wine Fair - I tasted a slew of wines I’d never encountered before, including this sassy orange Georgian number from @gotsawines , said hi to Alice and meet her best friend and Somm Pascaline, and run into some warm and familiar faces. All in, a lovely day back in my favorite borough in the world. .
At the expense of being slightly boring, most of my posts, if you haven’t noticed, have primarily been about wine. An obsession, a vocation, a pleasure or a privilege; all of the above. What I love about wine is being able to be at once surprised, delighted, jolted on the nose and on the palate. Like tasting these terroir-specific varietals - trousseau and poulsard - pretty much for the first time. Ps: The two different vintages of the same trousseaus were starkly different, of course. Thankful to be part of a kickass wine group.
