Isabel Legeron is France’s only female Master of Wine and only one of 354 MW’s worldwide. She’s been named “Wine Woman of the Year” in Paris and is recipient of the Madame Bollinger Award for Excellence in Tasting. Her website refers to her as “That Crazy French Woman,” which is also the name of a TV show she’s hosted and her blog. Isabel is Founder of RAW Wine and author of “Natural Wine: An Introduction to Organic and Biodynamic Wines Made Naturally.”
By day, Isabel, consults for London’s Bibendum Restaurant & Oyster Bar in Kensington, Elliot’s in Borough Market and The Richmond in Hackney. She also founded the wine education program at Divertimenti Cookery School, in London, and has consulted for several luxury hotels and resorts. Isabel’s latest claim to fame is the creation of RAW Wine, a two- day independent wine fair showcasing more than 100 vintners from around the world, whose mission is “to make natural wines made from sustainably farmed, organic or biodynamic grapes, with nothing removed or added during wine making, bar at most a dash of sulfites.” Info here:www.rawwine.com
