Today was a glorious day. Not only was it one of those rare English spring days with a vivid blue sky and freshness in the air, but also it was the day of The Real Wine Fair. It’s a wine fair that brings together producers of natural and authentic wines, for a two-day show in a beautiful setting, Tobacco Dock in Wapping, East London.
For me this is about as good as it gets. Interesting wines: wines that I can fall in love with. Wines that I just want to drink, made by interesting people with stories to tell. I arrived early, as the show was opening at 10 am, and tasted through to late afternoon.
Lots of new discoveries. For now, all I can manage is a few pictures of some of the people who I met. The fair is on tomorrow again: alas, I will be busy with wine challenge judging, or I would have been back for a second day.
