Our Weekend Wine Expo

This weekend we received FREE tickets to a Wine Expo in Brive.  A friend of ours has an older brother who runs a vineyard in Bordeaux and he had the hook up with tickets.  Upon arrival you received a wine glass and could hop from booth to booth and have UNLIMITED tastings! There were Bordeaux, Medoc, Saint Emillion, and Champagne region wines... among others. I had to slow down after a few champagne booths because the "bubbly" is my weakness.  We also found a South African wine station that reminded us of our besties Kent & Nicki and our dream to someday open a vineyard in the Winelands.... a girl can dream right?  In the mix were a few stations to taste test a variety of cheeses, olives, and escargot.  It was such a fun afternoon! Thanks to Julie for the free tickets :) 

THIS weekend, Egletons is having their Wine Expo... we will most likely be going to that as well! Why not?
