The Real Wine Fair is one of the original natural wine fairs and has become an internationally-renowned event since its inception in 2012. Growers come from all over the world to exhibit their wines, and trade and consumers from throughout the UK (and also Europe) to taste, engage with the producers and experience the unique atmosphere of an artisan wine fair. As well as the two days of the fair itself, there is a nationwide promotion of organic, biodynamic and natural wines, the largest and most wide-ranging in the UK, called The Real Wine Month.
