Spent a good portion of today at the natural wine fair in Borough Market. It was a fantastic location (though hot sunny weather or sheet rain would have played havoc), and the tasting itself was stunning. An embarrassment of riches. Here’s a short video of the event, which I hope gives you a brief flavour of things.
I tasted widely, but I certainly didn’t taste everything. Some great wines, new and old. A great turn-out from the growers, too.
