RAW WINE 2018

natural wine week

May 7th, 2018

Thank the wine gods, the RAW Wine fair is back! And for the very first time, the legendary wine weekend has been moved to a glorious Berlin spring week instead of one of our gloomy Siberian-style winter months, a great move which will guarantee a whole different vibe. This coming weekend will mark the fourteenth edition of  RAW WINE and the anticipation and warmer weather have ensured a bigger-than-ever interest in the event which will gather 150 of the world’s most acclaimed low-intervention/natural and artisanal wine makers under one roof at Markthalle Neun on Sunday, May 13th and Monday, May 14th.

“..150 of the world’s most acclaimed low-intervention/natural and artisanal wine makers under one roof at Markthalle Neun..”

As ever, in order to be able to exhibit at RAW, the producers and wine growers in attendance have all had to adhere to strict entrance criteria. Many of these wines feature on the lists of the world’s best restaurants and many come with cult followings. As controversial as the natural wine topic might be right now, one thing is impossible to deny: These producers are true artisans, their wines an intensely honest reflection of their terroirs and their wine making processes a benchmark for treating our planet correctly..

“Some of the city’s best food and drink venues have joined forces with winemaker and wine shops and put together a RAW-celebration of epic proportions”

Maybe it’s because of the long break, or maybe it’s because of Berlin’s ever increasing interest in artisanal wines, either way I’m pretty damned excited for this weekend of stellar satellite events happening all around Berlin and you feel a buzzing excitement around the food scene. Some of the city’s best food and drink venues have joined forces with winemakers and wine shops and put together a RAW-celebration of epic proportions, often in close collaboration with the winemakers themselves, offering unique opportunities to meet these people in real life.  There are plenty of VERY interesting happenings from Monday onwards, behold the full run down on everything that’s going on, and when. And if in doubt on where to go for a glass, make sure to swing by BFS’s favourite natural wine spots like St. Bart, Michelberger, JaJa, Wagner, Lode & Stijn, MINE, Cordobar or the Unfiltered popup at Barkin Kitchen.

CATCH YOU IN THE FUMES!
