The Best Organic Wines Selected at the Millésime Bio 2012 Organic Wine Fair

Millésime Bio is the world's largest organic wine fair, and is becoming more and more important as the years go by.  Each January, organic winemakers from around the world gather in Montpellier to showcase their wines and to share best practices in organic and biodynamic farming techniques.

Each of our five partner vineyards were exhibitors at the wine fair, and put their wines forward for the Challenge Millésime Bio best organic wine awards.

We are thrilled to announce that two of our partner winegrowers had one of their organic wines selected for a silver medal.  Domaine Chapelle won theirs for the Santenay Premier Cru, Beaurepaire 2009 organic red wine, and Domaine Jean-Marc Brocard for their Chablis Vielles Vignes 2009 organic white wine.

Congratulations for this well deserved praise, that once again recognizes the quality and excellence of our partner winemakers!

Original St Valentine’s Gift for a Wine Lover. Adopt a row of vines!

Find out what it's really like to be a winemaker with the Gourmet Odyssey Wine Experience gift and discover the secrets that go into making a great wine. It's the St Valentine's gift for 2012 that your loved one won't forget!

Original St Valentine's Gift for a Wine Lover. Adopt-a-vine in an organic French vineyard

So, what's included? Your partner will become the adopted owner of a mini plot of vines in one of our organic vineyards in France, and will follow all of the key stages in making the wine. You can also include one or more of the Gourmet Odyssey Wine Experience Days at the vineyard so that you can roll up your sleeves and get involved yourself in helping the winemaker.

The Wine Experience Days, each valid for two people, are the ideal excuse to get away and share a weekend together in one of France's most beautiful wine regions. Alongside the winemaker, you'll learn how to cultivate the vines, harvest the grapes and blend the wines in the cellar. A wine tasting session of the estate' wine are of course included, as well as the chance to savour other regional delicacies during the winemaker's meal.

At the end of the Wine Experience, your loved one will receive their own personalised bottles of wines made with the grapes from their adopted vines.

So if you're looking for an original St Valentine's gift to surprise the wine lover in your life, why not adopt a vine!
