Welcome to Alexandre Bain, a new Raisin ambassador !

Welcome to Alexandre Bain, a new Raisin ambassador !

Great news for the New Year, Alexandre Bain is now a Raisin ambassador!

When you are a small structure with limited means, it is essential to be backed by people who are important to many others. It is also always flattering to know that what you do is recognized as pertinent and useful. Our heartfelt thanks to Alexandre for giving us his trust and support.

What does it mean to be a Raisin ambassador?

In the natural wine world, winemakers, cellar or restaurant owners, sommeliers, journalists, bloggers, and artists all form an unusual, solid and singular ecosystem. Each in their own way, they embody a living, evolving and inspiring movement.

Below, you’ll find all Raisin ambassadors, we are really proud of:

Jean-François Nicq, Jean Maupertuis, Paco Mora, Marie Carmarens, Patrick Böttcher, Ito Yoshio, Sylvie Augereau, Laurence Manya Krief, Christian Binner, Ivo Ferreira, Michel Tolmer, Catherine & Pierre Breton‎, France Gonzalvez, Émeline Calvez, Jean-Marie et Thierry Puzelat, Antonin Iommi-Amunategui.

2018 « Revue du Vin de France »’s Grand Prize: power to natural wine!

2018 « Revue du Vin de France »’s Grand Prize: power to natural wine!

This year, the « Revue du Vin de France »’s Grand Prize is accompanying the movement and celebrates Jura genius Jean-François Ganevat as Winemaker of the Year and François Adam at La Vigne d’Adam in Plappeville (Moselle) as Wine Merchant of the year. Obviously, both are referenced in Raisin 😉 The magazine also awards the Jury’s Choice prize to « soil osteopaths » Lydia and Claude Bourguignon.

The wine world is evolving and we at Raisin are delighted, long may the changes continue! The manifest good sense of a « natural » approach is slowly taking root in a world that used to deny its existence and importance.

On a less positive note, the cruel absence of women in this classification raises questions and eyebrows. Editors of the Revue des Vins de France, we could provide you with a long list of talented female artists: winemakers, authors, sommeliers, bloggers, importers, editors, oenologists and wine merchants to submit 😉 So please, before the next edition, don’t hesitate to contact us! In the meantime, you can also visit the page of our friends Womendowine.
