Thanks to you, to all of the winemakers, wine shops, restaurants, bars, bloggers, journalists, writers, lovers of natural wine, to those who discovered the app by chance, to those who visited us at tastings, to our friends, our parents, our families, to the entire Raisin team who has done phenomenal work, and to those who spread the word as well. Thank you, thank you, thank you. 100,000 downloads seems to be right at our fingertips 👍
This may have taken some time, but it was well worth the wait…With over 291 bars, wine cellars, and restaurants, including 40 recently added, Italy is one of the leading countries in natural wine! How can you not be excited about this country rich in history, culture, eating, and drinking. From Piedmont to Tuscany through Abruzzi, you’ll be delighted to find these regions full of places to drink the wines that we love.
Grazie mile to Christophe Fustinoni for his involvement. Also thanks to Elena Masi, Ions Arigris, Gae Saccoccia, Elena and Fulvio de Marchi, Michele Ramponi, and Christian Binner for their help, along with all of our users and contributors. Ciao a tutti!
In average, 100 new users are downloading our app, daily. It is a small step for an app, a giant step for natural wine 😉
And it only just began, there are so many new features coming soon. Thanks to our wonderful users and very thankful for our devoted team of volunteers 😉
We have now counted 212 bars, restaurants, and wine shops in the USA where you’ll find at least 30% natural wine. 😋 Amazing! You see one missing? Please let us know by sending us an email here: [email protected]
