Natural Wines Invade NY - Vivent Les Vins Libres and The Big Glou, February 27 - 29!


For many years now, hundreds of vignerons from all over Europe have joined together at tastings to display their wonderful new world of naturally-made wines, made from grapes grown in living soils farmed with organic and biodynamic methods. (One of the first and favorite is La Dive Bouteille, held originally in a cellar in Bourgueil in 1999.) Finally, New York will host two exciting events of its own - Vivent Les Vins Libres at Racines NY and The Big Glou at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, beginning Saturday February 27th. We urge all CSW customers to support both these wonderful events and the great producers who have come from around the world to present their beautiful natural wines!
