Villa Favorita 2014

Villa Favorita 2014, april 5th -7th

Villa Favorita offers a structured tasting journey that allows to study or learn about the natural wine: the most important event of natural wine in Europe, both in number of exhibitors, and number of visitors. Villa Favorita combines Italian and foreign wines and aims to share experiences and techniques to produce wine in a natural way, both in the vineyard and winery, and to disseminate the culture of “terroir” (climate, geology, topography, soil). A gorgeous atmosphere created by the homonymous Venetian villa, Villa Favorita is the perfect environment to create a unique event which hosts selected producers from all over Europe mainly from France. Each visitor can not only taste the wines of each producer, but also and above all to meet, know and speak directly with the producers themselves, even in different languages, thanks to a staff of interpreters made available by the organizers. The event Villa Favorita, therefore, was born out of the need of a growing commitment to spread a new culture of natural wine, as a result of a natural process, in full compliance with the peculiarities of the soil.

Meet the winemakers

Gergovie Wines works with a few of a new generation of winemakers eschewing chemical pesticides and fertilizers in favour of letting the land speak (sing even). Winemaking is done with the wild yeasts indigenous to the grapes. You will not be tasting industrial products but a direct expression of grape, place and personality.

Saturday 19th May from 11am to 5pm for general public and up to 7pm for professionals.

At 40 Maltby Street, home of Gergovie Wines, London SE1 3PA


#NEW11 | Natural European Wines, an unprecedented event

Natural European Wines is a professional organization whose objective is to unite the largest number of natural wine producers in an unprecedented event.

The expression ‘’natural wine’’ defines wine that is derived from a process that seeks to eliminate any unnecessary interventions, and thus: the absence of chemical additives and manipulations by human hand, in the vineyards as well as in the winery. The result is a wine that fully expresses the unique characteristics of its territory and of its vine.

At this event, all the associations, which unite small producers sharing the same principles from across Europe, were invited to participate.

So the real protagonists are the producers, each presenting their methods to an international audience and specialized press

The Natural Wine Fair

The Natural Wine Fair. Borough Market, London. 15,16 & 17 May 2011.

«This fair is the brainchild of THAT CRAZY FRENCH WOMAN (aka Isabelle Legeron MW) and five natural wine importers who, between them, represent dozens of different natural wine producers here in the UK. This fair is all about trying to get natural wines out there for everyone to taste.
All of us involved in the fair share the same love of this extraordinary drink. We love wine made with grapes and nothing else. So we thought why not do something together, and here we are.
120 growers are now onboard and will be over in the UK for the 15, 16 and 17 May this year, complete with 500 of their wines. Come along and meet them. We’ll give you a catalogue, tasting glass and you can have a taste of them all if you really like.
We’re also organising a series of events and talks by keynote speakers in the natural wine field so keep in touch and we’ll let you know what’s what, when and where.
  • ALL grapes are, at a minimum, organic
  • ALL grapes are hand-harvested
  • NO added yeasts
  • NO added sugar
  • NO rectified acidity
  • Little or no sulphites are added during fermentation or at bottling*

*For us, low sulphite levels means that the grower is ultimately aiming to add as little SO2 as possible but whether or not (s)he does so, or indeed how much they add, is dependent on the year.

The fair is being held at Borough Market, one of London’s foodie hotspots.

How to get there:

Borough Market is set beneath the railway viaducts between the river Thames and Borough High Street in South East London.

The closest tube stop is London Bridge (Borough Market exit).»

Salón de Vinos Naturales 29/03/09

El 29 de marzo se celebró en Barcelona el Salón de Vinos Naturales organizado por L’Ànima del Vi. Al evento acudieron cientos de personas en lo que fué un éxito rotundo de asistencia y una demostración de por donde se mueve el público cuando actúa libremente. De los pilares que mantienen este mundo del vino sin duda el más avanzado y ágil es el de los consumidores. Muchas veces se pone como excusa que el cliente pide esto o lo otro pero eso es un comodín para los que no saben ganarse su confianza. La mayoría de los aficionados al vino tiene cierta predisposición a probar algo nuevo, a ser soprendidos y valoran mucho la autenticidad de las cosas.

En el sector bodeguero no hay prácticamente respuesta. A los grandes no les interesa, los pequeños no se atreven. Y por supuesto, los medios y los distribuidores buscan la sombra que más cobija.

Desde aquí animamos a los pequeños viticultores a que emprendan el camino de elaborar un vino singular y natural de forma comprometida con su entorno.

Crónicas del evento:

Adictos a la Lujuria

Tras muchos días, semanas de espera, el pasado domingo 29 de marzo los amigos de Vinos Naturales desembarcaron como si de un gran festival de música veraniego se tratara


Bodega Cauzón

El pasado día 29 de marzo como saben los seguidores del blog, tuvimos un encuentro los vinateros naturales de Francia y España en Barcelona, fue todo un éxito


De Vinis

Ambiente especial para una convocatoria esperada: la que nos permitía poner ante nuestras narices y paladares el concepto de «vino natural» de una forma amplia y con muchas botellas para comparar.


L’Anima del Vi

Pero queríamos igualmente transmitir cuanto, el vino se inscribe en un registro plenamente hedonista y libertario. Porque el vino natural abre un inmenso espacio de libertad, desvela lo esencial, promueve la diversidad y la individualidad, no se esconde detrás de ninguna máscara, se presenta desnudo, con sus virtudes, sus calidades, y también sus defectos, sus irregularidades, sensible como lo es todo lo vivo, cambiante, sorprendente, seductor e iconoclasta.


Nacho Bueno

Un éxito. En todos los aspectos. Por la asistencia de público, por la diversidad de bodegas, por la calidad de los vinos presentados, pero lo más importante, por la gente, tanto expositores, como expertos y aficionados. No podía haber mejor ambiente.


Observatorio de Vino

Ayer, domingo 29 de marzo de 2009, fue la gran fiesta de los vinos naturales en Barcelona; el día en que una serie de personas que unidas por la Red, nos conocimos y nos abrazamos como si de toda la vida se tratara. Ayer fue un hito de celebración por una vida sincronizada y sostenible.
