Last November, I advised you about the great opportunity to taste wines from whole France during a special event organized by independant growers. It happens twice a year in Paris.
Next time, it will take place from 25th to 28th of March 2011 at the Espace Champerret, on the west side of Paris, close to the Palais des Congres of Porte Maillot.
How does it work ? It’s so simple and friendly. You just need to pay 6 Euros to access the event. An empty glass (not for long) is given to you. You will keep it with you even when leaving the event. You walk through the aisles of the wine event and whenever you can see a wine that you would like to taste, you just need to ask and you are served directly by the grower himself.
Except tasting all kinds of wines (Be careful not to be drunk !) you will appreciate to discuss directly with growers and if you want, you can buy some bottles of wine. All wines you taste can be bought but at the end of the show, it happens that some wines are out of stock.
