SAFARI

Want to take a Safari… Copenhagen style?

Let’s take a journey to discover a simplistic take on world class cuisine – no rules, no unnecessary garnish, and no nonsense.

And of course…the natural wines, all selected from a dozen Copenhagen importers to focus on elegance meets juiciness and crispiness. It’s a Copenhagen style safari at restaurant Safari that is a real culinary expedition. Owner Simon Leo Hansen says, “Our hosting style is controlled chaos and laid back with no white gloves and a language everybody can understand.”

WineZine

Meet the creator Katherine Clary, and the women behind The Wine Zine.

Meet the creator Katherine Clary, and the women behind The Wine Zine. This past week at the Zine’s launch in San Francisco, we said cheers to issue number 3, and Raisin’s first ad in this biannual publication with such a fresh energy on natural wine.

The Wine Zine is “about the culture, people, and ideas behind natural and low-intervention wine…the result of an urge to democratize wine knowledge and inspire a more diverse conversation around what’s happening in natural, organic, biodynamic wine.”

qvevri

Qvevri in this modern era…

In this modern era, Stéphane and Régine Bannwarth were one of the first French domaines to bring in qvevris, back in 2011.

The pioneers of Obermorschwihr in Alsace.  Georgian jars, beeswax coated clay pots, buried underground for temperature control. The grapes can sit in a hemp bag for several months, then removed for the wine to continue its journey into complex aromas and delicious flavor. 

Thanks to Timo from Selection Sauvage for the awesome picture !

BICHI

Noel Téllez of Bichi Wines

Raisin just ran into Noel Téllez with his Pet Mex and other Bichi wine cuvées! With Pet Mex, who needs Pet Nat in Mexico’s Baja wine growing region.

High elevation vineyards on sandy loam soils that get a blast of cool Pacific Ocean air. Bichi wines, slang for naked wines; naked, natural and nicely listed on the Raisin APP.

Check out the freshly launched Issue 4 of Pipette for a great background on Noel Téllez and Bichi!
