|RAWFair 2014 - London|
We returned in July, for the RAW fair, and the energy all around us was electric. It was a disorienting and exciting when after a long walk we found tucked way, behind the bustling markets, an old cave filled with natural winemakers, from all over Europe. Some of these winemakers were here only for this intimate and obscure tasting, rather than Raw, some were here for both. All were pouring the most ancient recipe made more poetic by London's own history living within the cavernous wall of this catacomb.
At the fair itself the air was filled with expectation and light (not to mention uncharacteristic heat!).
Wine, natural food vendors and familiar faces made for making friends and memories quickly. When you're faced with such abundance you can either feel overwhelmed or gratitude; and, possibly both. I can still feel the gratitude of abundance; love, passion and sensuality bloomed in this week and we lingered in its embrace and continue to drink it in whenever I can.
