From our organizers:
Natural wine. Raw. Skin contact. Orange. Pét-Nat. Glouglou.
You’ve seen these terms on menus, in your fav publications, in casual convo at happy hour — but what exactly do they mean? How is this wine changing our food system? What’s the difference between conventional, organic, biodynamic, and natural wines? Are all natural wines created equal? Is the funk worth the hype?
In collaboration with Squarespace, our conversation partner and the all-in-one website-building platform, join pineapple NY as we dive head first into the cloudy and complex world of natty wine. Across the wine world, womxn are taking charge of producing, promoting, distributing, and selling natural wine, and we’ll chat with these experts to get to the bottom of the proverbial barrel.
In a panel led by food-and-bev activist Ashtin Berry, we’ll hear from Rachel Signer of Pipette magazine, Amanda Smeltz, wine director and somm at Estela and Cafe Altro Paradiso, and local wine hero Michele Thomas from Greene Grape’s own wine shop.
Come get funky with pours of our favorite natural wines, hearty eats (between sips) from Brooklyn cafe Baba Cool thanks to our friends at Caviar, and Mountain Valley Spring Water because hydration. Plus we’ll have Pipette magazines for sale!
