What’s inside – The Guardian about Vicky’s Fleurie

Vicky's Fleurie was selected amongst the 3 wines of the week by David Williams in The Guardian, it was late November 2015 and I am telling you all about it today.  The year 2016 starts fast, the fog reminds us, at least when we drive, that we should not forget to set the "slow life" mode. It's very soon the time to print vicky's rosé...
