“We are delighted to host Ireland’s first Natural Wine Week in Galway this month. In recent years there has been a growing appreciation of natural, organic and biodynamic wines, and Natural Wine Week will provide the public an opportunity to learn more about this important movement,” said JP McMahon in a statement.
“Wine lovers, as well as people with an interest in sustainability and organic farming, should come along to try a selection of organic and biodynamic wines and discover the fantastic environmental and health benefits associated with them.”
