Submission overload: 480 establishments awaiting moderation on Raisin!

A sign of the times, or the price of success? 😉 The world of natural wine seems to get bigger and bigger, everyday and all around the earth. It is indeed great news!

Thanks to the establishments you have submitted, we have more than 480 bars, restaurants and wine shops awaiting validation on Raisin
We make sure each establishment:
– offers at least 30% minimum of natural wine (wine list),
– has all key information added (logo, contact details, phone, e-mail, social networks and photos),
– receives a confirmation message.

This process takes an average of 20 minutes per place, giving 15 days of work to process all pending establishments.

Raisin is an ENTIRELY FREE app created and curated solely by VOLUNTEERS.

To make your establishment registration go faster, you can help us to finance the Android version, so that everyone can enjoy the app!

We work every day to validate bars, restaurants and wine shops on the waiting list. If you back our project, we are committed to registering you in priority. So go to KissKissBankBank

We need your support to make the campaign a success

We’ve been working like madmen for months now on the new version of Raisin, inventing an original natural wine experience; with:

– An index of natural winemakers with over 450 domains referenced already
– A new map with over 1,800 establishments all over the world (and the possibility to submit new places from the app)
– A timeline where the whole community can post about the movement. Because natural wine is more than just wine!

10,000 Raisin users.

we-are-10000-users

Between Christmas and the New Year the 10,000th Raisin user discovered an unprecedented application with news about natural wines and over 1,700 places referenced worldwide where you can find these wines; restaurants, wine bars, delicatessens and wine shops, many of which are long-term supporters of winemakers who respect the environment and mankind defending another view of the world, another way of life.

Our new version of the IPhone app is almost ready to launch, we are fine-tuning the last wrinkles before starting an exciting new phase of this huge project.
The crowdfunding for the Android version is in the pipeline and will also be out soon, 2017 is going to be an exciting year! As the expression says, patience is bitter but its fruit is sweet, life will soon be sweeter!

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT.

BEST WISHES FOR 2017!

BEST WISHES FOR 2017!

We at Raisin wish you fantastic New Year; health, happiness and success all washed down by our favorite drink – you know, these wines we love and that we call ‘natural’!

We’ve kept this short as all our energy is going into Version 2 for iPhone, coming very soon!!

NATURAL WINEMAKERS, SEND US YOUR LABELS!

We are currently preparing the index of natural winemakers for Raisin. We have already referenced more than 200 from around the world (Australia, Spain, South Africa, France, Italy…) with the corresponding 1631 wines. You will see it is amazing!

NATURAL WINEMAKERS index

Our objective is to present each wine in the best possible way. For each wine, you will find: 
> name > winemaker > domain > region > designation > grape variety(ties) > the year.
We have been running tests using our photos but we’re not satisfied with the results. Taking good photos is a serious business and takes time.

NATURAL WINEMAKER WE NEED YOU!

We consider a winemaker is natural if at least 30% of their wines are just made with grape juice, and sometimes minimal doses of sulphites, in respect of the environment and of mankind.
If you make wine this way, we would be delighted if you could send us your wine labels in digital format to label@raisin.digital. We accept all formats: .PDF, .PNG, .JPG, .PSD, .AI, etc.

Otherwise you can also post them to: 
Raisin – 88, rue de la Villette, Bâtiment B, 75019 Paris

Many thanks in advance to you all. Please share as widely as possible.
CHEERS TO NATURAL WINE!
