RAW Show- Brick Lane, London

Tuesday, Jul. 10th 2012

Please excuse our long blog silence..! We are  sharing interesting organic news on Facebook and Twitter, and we’ll be blogging regularly too.

We wanted to tell you about the inaugural RAW (Real Artisan Wine) Show was a great opportunity to show our new no sulphur added wines from Castello di Tassarolo. Henry Finzi-Constantine from Castello di Tassarolo came over to talk with real passion about his work and his wines. The estate is farmed biodynamically, as far as possible using heavy horses (Titouan and Nicotine).The RAW show was held in the Truman Brewery, Brick Lane. It gave me a chance to finally have a ‘legendary’ curry there (I have had much better in Leeds – Hansa’s for example!). Henry is of Greek-Italian background and grew up close by to the Truman Brewery, and he remembers working the markets in Brick Lane as a lad. He was highly amused to be introduced at an event in Italy recently as a ‘farmer from London’. ‘You wouldn’t say that here!’ he observed.

The Sparkling Gavi was the unsurprising star of the show for us – light sparkling whites (and dessert wines) are always a relief for the palate at tasting events especially on hot days! The fruity and round Barbera-based red (Monferrato Rosso) and richer Gavi (Titouan) were popular too.

A highlight of the RAW Show was that the Renaissance des Appellations shared the stage- they are a group of highly esteemed organic wine producers, working together to encourage the progression of each other’s wines to become as biodynamic as possible. They began organically, and soon grew to a large collective of over 60 wineries. They judge each other on a three star system (, motivating each other to do their best and giving each Appellation the space to express itself. In the process, each wine maker consequently develops a wine that is absolutely unique to its place of growth, as it works in harmony with the land and earth. There are members from all around the world, including Chile, Germany and Australia, with the majority of the members being French.

Christine and Eric Saurel of the estimable Montirius estate are members of the Renaissance des Appellations. Vinceremos have been working with Montirius since their inception in 2002, and have a mutual passion and philosophy of achieving harmony between the vines, land, grapes and wines. They have an estate of 133 acres, and are the first biodynamic vineyard (since 1999) of the Vacqueyras and Gigondas appellations. They use a prototype water treatment system invented by Mr. Willy Vogt, which aims to be completely biological and eco-friendly, with the use of plants such as pharagmites (roseaux,) water irises, lilies (papyrus) nettles and algae.

Could wine be healthy for you?

Tuesday, Sep. 1st 2009

In recent years customers have often come to us wanting to know if there are indeed any benefits in drinking red wine.  The understanding that organic wine is more often than not healthier (because there are fewer chemicals used in its production) is only the start of the response as research undertaken over the last few years has indicated that there may be a benefit to drinking red wine over white – this is not to say that only organic red will suffice, but it certainly gives you a head start!
