OPENING DINNER of VINEXPO

Saturday 17 June  2017

For one evening, we had the pleasure of welcoming wine professionals of 43 different nationalities to declare the opening of the prestigious international Vinexpo fair. The fair, which is held in Bordeaux every other year alternating with Tokyo and Hong Kong, is a showcase for the city of Bordeaux and the reputation of its wines. The evening was magnificent as was the dinner created by chef A. Dutournier.
