All things come to he who waits. Unfortunately, I am not the patient type : Belgium, I wanted to have it and well, I had to wait. First it came slowly, it was welcoming, funny, it gave me a shoulder to rest when I needed. It looked at me too, it did let me go, come back and maybe it thought I would be tired of it.

So, with pants and training shoes, with a skirt and high heels, with boots and warm stockings, I’ve been all over Brussels this past 2 years. As a starter, I went to the France-Vin Wine Exhibition (here & there), my first ever, a good way to meet with the market. Then I came back as a tourist, to try some wine bars, later I came again as a geek, to speak about social medias at Wbis. I also visited Megavino, Aperos Vintage de Bordeaux, French Fries houses. After a while, I also came to see the friends I had met all over France and the world, because everywhere on the planet, there is always a Belgian to share a good bottle of wine.

So, it was fun! Yet a bit hard from time to time. Vicky’s wine, we were talking about it, we had a few sips, but it wasn’t really there. So I came back, one more time. This time I had decided I wouldn’t wait for a funny man to import my wines and I went to see the good wine bars that I had cleverly been advised to go.  I opened a few bottles and met the owner. Then, after almost 2 years, I felt things had changed.

In November, I took my place to the Brussels Wine Market, as you take a ticket in first class : the thing you don’t really need, that you can’t really afford, but that really makes you happy. It was one more time an excuse for a Belgian visit. The real surprise this day, it was to see many visitors leaving the exhibition with a bottle of my last born : the clairet (I’ll come back to this point).

So yes it was November, we were a few days away from Beaujolais Nouveau and I had to go to this new exhibition. So I called wine shops again, my phone started to ring and some Belgian even wanted my wine. Waw! This very day, my car, my courage and myself went with Vicky’s wines to deliver the first addresses. The Beaujolais Nouveau the Fleurie and the Mâcon arrived in Brussels! So they should stay! I’m coming back. 

Thank you very much to you all!
I’ll see you at France-Vins 2014 the 22nd of January in Brussels :)
