Bangkok is getting its first vegan-friendly "natural" wine festival this month, showcasing wines made with little to no chemical intervention. 

Hosted by About Eatery, the Bangkok Natural Wine Festival will take place on Mar 29-Apr 2, featuring workshops by top local sommeliers and wine gurus on the first three days and a wine tasting party on the final day. 

Among the workshops are one on Mar 29 discussing unique grapes from around the world zeroing in on the work of Latin American wine labels like Inquebrantable (Peru) and De Martino (Chile). Another workshop on Mar 31 will teach about the extreme art of winemaking on a volcano, featuring Italian wine labels like I Vigneri di Salvo Foti and I Vigneri - Tenuta Castellaro.

Tickets for the party on Apr 2 are B500 (available at About Eatery), letting you taste up to 50 wines from around the world, including “orange wine” (white wine made using the same method as red wine) from Inquebrantable winery—the first of its kind imported to Thailand. 

"Natural" has become a buzzword for wine in recent years, basically meaning wine made without chemical additives and minimal technological processes. While the movement has taken hold in Europe and America, outside Japan it's still a very new thing for Asia. For that reason, organizers say the festival is intended to become an annual event.

Thailand is the second country in the world to implement the certification after the United Kingdom, with five venues that have met the required standards since 2012. Under the ISO’s goals, venues are encouraged to combine profit, people and the planet in a way that is truly sustainable. Here's why you should pick these five ISO 20121-certified venues for your next conference.

First promised for August last year, the all-in-one "Mangmoom" card has been a long, long time coming. Latest estimates put it as launching in October, but frustrated Bangkok commuters are used to waiting. Here are some things that should have been done years ago.
