Vinitech Sifel, Bordeaux, 2-4 December 2014

In the last week the city of Bordeaux really suffered from traffic jams and crowded hotels, especially for three days, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of December.

I have been interested more and more in the Languedoc-Roussillon region recently. Up until now I have known it only superficially and I am not sure what had a big impact on me – was it my frequent travelling to the Midi lately?
