Another Heart to Feed

Another Heart to Feed is another great Raisin spot in Manchester with natural wine flowing and a bomb brunch.

From delicious pancakes to Federico Orsi’s Posca Rossa, Le Coste’s Ripazzo, or any of these all natural vinos, you’re sure to enjoy! 🥞🍷 ❤️


France Gonzalvez needs your help!

🎗 Do you know and love France Gonzalvez? Of course! Good thing, because now she needs us & you.

In order to help her in these tough times that we are all going through, France wants to quickly sell two of her Beaujolais-Villages cuvées: (Ricochet) in white and (Volte Face) in red 🍷, the 2019 vintages. Since she is located in France, she won’t be able to ship to each customer individually, however, the best way to help is to reach out to importers to contact her and get some wines!

For more information and inquiries about prices, send an email to:

or on Facebook:

We really hope you can help out in any way! 👍



“Life’s fast. Drink slow.” 

“Life’s fast. Drink slow.” is a motto that we can get behind, especially when it’s natural wine at Chicago’s new patio, bottle shop, and bar called “Easy Does It” in Logan Square.

Their patio is perfect for social distancing, taking it easy, and enjoying natural wine moments. Check them out on Raisin! 📍

Providence at Guethary

PROVIDENCE by the ocean in Guethary!

Elsa Marie chef and organiser of the café, bar, restaurant and gallery, known as PROVIDENCE, on the square just before the ocean in Guethary.

A little, pure gem of a place, with its run of visiting chefs, surfers, artists and travelers. A wall of natural wines to go with the food… and it’s Raisin listed of course. 


Thierry Schwartz – The Restaurant in Obernai !

For all of you who are into raw and natural produce, the approach of top chef Thierry Schwartz is spot on: “the product is just right on its own when presented with a natural elegance…”

An approach that works with the range of products (food, bread, wines) served up at his starred restaurant in Obernai, Thierry Schwartz – The Restaurant. A cuisine that’s 100% alive and natural, which uses ingredients from organic producers who are highly attuned to nature. Much to our pleasure, the wine list follows the same theme, as Thierry is a big supporter of the natural wine movement, with its wines lively and libres (free). The restaurant’s wine list contains one of the best (and biggest) selections of natural wines on the planet (more than 1,150 references and 15,000 bottles). An essential address for any self respecting lover of natural food and wine, and it’s no surprise that the Raisin sticker is there on display. 

Haut Les Verres

Rais your glasses at the Ospizio Sottile refuge in Colle Valdobbia!

Nestled at an altitude of 2,480 meters in the Italian Alps, at the crossroads of Piedmont and the Aosta Valley, the Rifugio Ospizio Sottile is the perfect spot for natural wine lovers enjoying hiking and the great outdoors!

On the ground floor of this 3 story building is the bar with a 100% natural wine selection. For those that have worked up an appetite on their hike, there’s also a restaurant (reservation only). As for the view, it’s absolutely breathtaking even to seasoned hikers. Bravo to Simone Polenghi and to the young and dynamic team of this unique place for focusing on healthy, lively, and natural products that are in tune with the beauty of the place. This is without a doubt, the highest place in the world to drink natural wine on the Raisin map!
