Wine writer Alice Feiring was invited over from New York to London to speak at the first UK Natural Wine Fair. I caught up with her at Wine Wharf wine bar at the end of the second of the three days when she had witnessed a couple of the sessions for the trade and press. (She chose a Greek white; I chose a German Riesling.)

I am told there was some disagreement between British wine writer Margaret Rand and natural wine importer Douglas Wregg of Caves de Pyrène, the major exhibitor at the Fair over the question of oxidation. You can see and hear Wregg on natural wines in this video.

See a wide range of views on natural wines in this thread as well as a response to this video in our Members' forum. I will report in more detail on my impressions.

See Alice's video interview of me(!) either at www.alicefeiring.com or on YouTube.
