Fleurie 2017 – Hailstorm Harvest

30th of June 2017, we were writing on Chateau Des Moriers Facebook page: "In Beaujolais - all is going very well in the vineyard, the weather forcast is perfect, the vineyard is green, splendid thanks to the sunshine but also to this spring rainfalls.

Vicky in Luxembourg

Luxembourg is 2 hours away from Paris, by train. Really easy if you want to check out their green hills planted in vines. There you find a few good producers, making dry wines or sparkling.
