Last week, nearly 50,000 wine trade visitors and exhibitors congregated in Bordeaux attend the France’s premiere wine event.
Highlights by the numbers:
Bordeaux’s memorable 2009 vintage threw the wine community in a frenzy – setting new benchmarks of quality, demand and price. Consequently, speculations are high for the 2010 vintage, driving the most influential wine critics, enthusiasts and buyers in waves to En Primeur tastings in Bordeaux.
If you’re new to the vino culture and community, there is a lot to learn. The wine trade is an entirely different beast in itself – with its own culture and network.
Luckily for you, we have a good source to get the ‘scoop’ of what’s going on.
