Fatigue Got the Better of Me...

Jet lag, I curse you!

Vinisud, an enormous, three day exhibition of Mediterranean wines and spirits in Montpellier took place Monday, yesterday and today. I tried so hard to get into a decent nighttime sleep schedule so I would have the inclination to drive three hours and taste wine all day.
No such luck.
(obviously, sleep is very high on my priority list!)

I'll just have to wait until Vinisud 2010.

Luckily I've been invited this Friday and early next week to help taste and choose the Minervois wines to be sold at the Chai le Port Minervois.

It will be a mini Vini. Pin It

I've been lucky enough to go to VinExpo twice, but have never made it to ViniSud.

2010? That seems so far away but actually...

2010 is when the next lunar eclipse will be as well.

I've read about "the cave" and pouzols minervois wine. I have a feeling I won't want to come back to Seattle so soon.

And jet lag stinks.

Vinisud is fabulous! Wines from almost every country on the Med. I went to in 2006 and was really looking forward to this one. Oh well.

They have it every two years so that should give you plenty of time plan to attend Vinisud 2010!

function of time,
The cave in Pouzols is very nice and some of the local vegetable and cheese producers do a mini market in their parking area on Saturday mornings, I think all year around, but it might be only in the summer. You will be spoiled by the time you leave!
But hey, you'll be a home owner and will always have a reason to come back, right?
