The New York City Raw Wine Fair was held on November 6-7. It was a two-day, huge tasting and celebration of low-intervention, organic, biodynamic and natural wines showcasing the growers whose farming and cellar philosophes concur with the raw wine charter of quality. Raw Wine “celebrates wines with emotion, wines that have a humanlike, or living presence. They are also wines that are an authentic expression of a place.”

The event was held at a warehouse at 99 Scott Avenue in the up and coming, graffiti filled, industrial prairie of Bushwick in Brooklyn. I attended the Sunday afternoon session which was open to both trade and consumers, it was packed with people having a good time.

 

I particular enjoyed wines from these producers:

 Dirty & Rowdy Winery

Donkey & Goat Winery
