Raw Wine Speakers’ Corner Features Natural Wine Legends

Heritage Radio Network was proud to team up with RAW WINE’s New York Fair for the second year to bring attendees a series of panels and tastings from the Speakers’ Corner. This year, half of the panels focused on Natural Wine Legends: Ernesto Cattel (Costadilà), Stefano Bellotti (Cascina degli Ulivi), Stanko Radikon (Radikon), and Lorenzo Corino.

RAW WINE is a totally independent wine fair created and organized by Isabelle Legeron MW. It celebrates wines with emotion. Wines that have a humanlike, or living, presence. They are also wines that are an authentic expression of a place. They are the polar opposite of industrialized, big-brand, manufactured, nothing-but-alcoholic-grape-juice wines, that use imagery and suggestion to sell a product.

The Speakers’ Corner lineup included the following panels:

Sunday, October 27th:
