Harpers-Inter Beaujolais Buyers Trip 2012

Check list:

Bags packed – nope.

Passport ready – erm…I’ll find it later.

Flight info sorted – Yeah, it’s on an email somewhere.

Weather forecast for Lyon – Bloody cold.

Excitement levels – Steadily rising.

This coming Monday (30/01/12) I’ll be embarking on a three day trip down to Beaujolais to take a look around 9 of the regions vineyards.

Along with Laura Heywood, Harpers magazine, plus 6 gentle folk from wine companies around the UK, we’ll be taking a peak at what the region has to offer.

The trip will be featured in the 24th of February’s issue of Harpers Wine & Spirit Trades Review.

So do keep tabs on our progress via the usual sources, Twitter, Facebook, for my pictures and mini reports.
