Marseilles Wine Show

Independant winegrowers from the Bouches du Rhones, Var, Vaucluse, Alps de Haute Provence and Corsica will be exhibiting their wine in Marseilles on February 7 and 8th at the Pharo http://palaisdupharo.marseille.fr.

Construction of this imperial residence began after a visit from Napolean Bonaparte in 1852 but neither he nor Eugenie ever occupied the palace.  Today this spectacular building which offers stunning views of the old port as seen in the photo above and the Chateau d’If is used primarily as a conference center. Approximately 120 vineyards from several different appelations will be present on both days from 10 to 6 pm. For more information go to:  www.bleuwinexpo.com
