This makes a lot of wines to taste and you better plan ahead with the fair’s website to make a choice. The problem is that their website [here the page for the next one in march which is a bit smaller] is not very user-friendly, you have to click repeatedly without ever having for example all the domaines of a given region on a single page, so I usually prefer to go there without planning.
It seems to me that in the past they displayed a large board at the entry with the names of participants and the stands location in the fair, I saw none of this this time, but walking and picking randomly the wineries you’ll taste is interesting as well, especially that there is no region order, they’re all mixed up with a Champagne producer standing next top a Languedoc for example. It had been a while that I hadn’t visited this fair in spite of receiving lots of invitations, sometimes because I’m out of town, sometimes because of the crushing crowds see pic on right , but I decided to visit again this december, first because there are a few natural-wine producers who participate, and because interesting vignerons pop up also year after year, who use the fair as a direct access to the Paris-region public.
It had been a few years since last time I visited, although I receive many invitations from my past visits I used to give them around, they’re not nominative. The good thing is, when you buy wine even once here, the domaines take note of your name and address and you receive every year from them an invitation for 2 people.
