On March 17-18, The Real Wine Fair was held in Tobacco Dock in Lodon’s Wapping district. As the name would imply, there were amazing natural wine makers from all over the world (with an especially large presence from Georgia), but visitors to the fair were also treated to a fantastic array of food, beer and spirits. Here are some highlights.
