Raw Announces Exclusive Partnership With Ottolenghi
RAW is delighted to announce its new partnership with one of London's most vibrant food havens Ottolenghi, who will be hosting the official RAW wine shop both at the show taking place 19th - 20th May, and also from its online store.
"My love of food goes hand in hand with an admiration for great wine. Handpicked and carefully sourced, the Ottolenghi wine collection, which we also sell online, focuses on artisan producers, local grape varieties and wine made in the most natural way. Our wines are from environmentally committed producers and give a strong sense of place - geographically, historically, culturally. It goes without saying, that these are also wines that we simply love drinking - and we're quite good at that! We are delighted and honoured to be working with Isabelle Legeron MW and her team at RAW, the only artisan wine fair. This partnership feels very natural indeed." Yotam Ottolenghi.
The official RAW Wine shop will launch on the Ottolenghi webstore mid-April and run through to the end of May. Giving wine fans a preview of what's on offer at the show, the online store will stock a wide selection of approximately 30 wines from the show's exhibitors.
For those who like to try before they buy, Ottolenghi will also be hosting the RAW wine shop at the fair itself, stocking more wines than the online store and giving visitors the chance to purchase new discoveries and favourites they've tasted at the show. Fans of Ottolenghi's food will be pleased to hear that they will also be offering visitors delicious canapés at the show to act as the perfect accompaniment to the wine.
RAW is one of the most exciting, and certainly the largest, collection of fine, natural, organic and biodynamic wine artisans ever to come together in the capital and now, with the support of Ottolenghi, more people will have the opportunity to not just taste, but purchase and take home some of these incredible wines.
