Come and join us for a special RADIKON natural wine tasting combined with nourishing food and enriching conversations on Friday 12th July from 7pm at The Hive.
Radikon, a winery located in Oslavia, in the north-east of Italy (close to the Slovenian border pioneered the movement towards natural and orange wines. When the late Stanko Radikon first started working with a local indigenous grape variety called Ribolla Gialla, he soon decided that it needs to be treated differently to reach its full potential. This has mainly been achieved through prolonged skin contact, a method of vinification already used by Stanko's grandfather. Combined with long periods of barrel and bottle ageing, a truly unique taste is achieved as well as a robustness which allowed Radikon to entirely eliminate the use of sulfites. All Radikon wines are now created in this way. The result is unusual orange and red wine with astronomical complexity, high ageing potential and deep, wild, flavours.
We are going to taste three incredible Radikon wines with you - Jakot, 2009 // Ribolla Gialla, 2010 // Slatnik, 2017.
