Read All About It: Amazing feedback for the Real Wine Fair 2024

We were overwhelmed with positive feedback of the Real Wine Fair, which took place on 28-29th April 2024 at Tobacco Dock in London. Here is just a small sampling of that feedback, for which we are so grateful.

Real Wine Fair 2024 London


It’s always a privilege to be at RWF, wouldn’t miss it for the world.  Beautifully run as always, and such a celebratory energy.  Growers were absolutely thrilled to be a part of it, thank you and everyone for all the work that goes in to make it such a special event. 

Roman Pawar – Modal Wines

I wanted to say a massive thank you for organising and inviting us to the Real Wine Fair 2024. I felt so honoured to be part of it, loved the energy and atmosphere as always.

…The feedback from our growers was also extremely positive. They were all very impressed with the quality of the event and the interest shown by the people attending. They all said that this was one of the best fairs they attended in the past years.

Thanks so much – Natalia and I had a great time, loved every minute of it.

Philip Harris – Natalia Harris Wines

We thoroughly enjoyed it, it seems to get better every year.  Our congratulations on what must have been a herculean effort by you and the Les Caves team.  It has to be the premier wine Fair now in the UK by a mile.

We just wanted to give a quick feedback for the real wine fair. It was a wonderful and perfect organized fair. I liked it a lot. Also the get together evening on both days. In Brawn and on Sunday were incredble. The amount of people was good and I met a lot of restaurants, shops and also international people.

…Again thank you for the wonderful fair and all the best

Just to say thank you so much for yesterday.   It was a terrific tasting with lots of great encounters and lovely wines, and now discoveries, not to mention sake  – of particular interest as I am just back from Japan – and liqueur de tomate.

“It’s exhilarating to see so many fantastic wine peeps doing it the natural way, brought together by the @realwinefair…the celebration of terroirs, hard work and skill of independent, artisan growers.” –@barrestaurantsolutions

“Felt like I was hanging with the cool kids this week at the @realwinefair….What a day! I went home thinking of buried cow horn and contemplated burning my entire wardrobe and buying a beanie. Cheers!” –@posingwithalcohol

“What a weekend it was. So many good times, too many banging wines, loads of old friends and a few new ones too…we shucked around 1000 oysters and sold out every day. Loved every minute of it. Huge thanks to everyone that organised it. Everyone at @lescavesdepyrene and @realwinefair, you heroes! @dwregg thanks for getting us involved. We’d love to come back next time. What a lovely weekend that was.” –londonshellco

“Yesterday was an absolute delight of tasting and chatting as we travelled down to the @realwinefair and met some of our favourite producers and found soo many new wines we cannot wait to get our hands on!” –@forestandfork

“What a couple of days at the @realwinefair – very good energy this year. Always a pleasure to get involved with this noble undertaking, and such a joy to see so many friendly faces under one roof. Massive thanks to everyone who plays a part in organising this logistical house of cards, and of course a bigger thanks still to the growers who travel to pour for the gathered masses.” –winesutb

“The @realwinefair never disappoints! The number of wonderful producers reunited under one roof is impressive. As intensive as fair days can be (especially for those presenting their wine and the organisers @lescavesdepyrene!!) nothing compares to the energy felt after meeting so many kind, generous, inspiring humans – the type of day that gives us much needed hope in the world.” –@vinejoyment

“With climate change hot on our heels, organic, biodynamic, and low intervention viti and viniculture have (thankfully) hit new heights of mainstream acceptance and popularity. @realwinefair highlights incredible people in our industry who are extremely passionate about these wines that are so VERY full of life. That sentiment reverberated through @tobaccodock this weekend as we celebrated some remarkable LIVING wines!” –@modern_wine
