Wine Fairs

Postby Joanbunting » Wed Oct 03, 2012 3:40 pm

Under full sail at the moment all over France. A great chance to buy bargains and re-stock the cellar.

I recall them happening in the UK too - but can't remember when.

The trick is to get hold of the catalogue ahead of time and do some research then make your choice and stick with it.

The whole process this year has been complicated by a complete failure of telephone lines so tills and computers were all down and everything had to paid for in cash - the cash machines were down too.

We were about 80% successful this time and the cellar is looking rather better than before. We save all our supermarket points to pay for the wine - but of course couldn't redeem them so we held back on some wines and will go back tomorrow now the lines are restored and do the rest.
