The Première Fête des Vieux Cépages will be held this Saturday in Trilla, a very pretty village high up in the hills of Roussillon. This first edition is being organised by the well known German wine writer, André Dominé, who has lived in Trilla for many years. The Vieux Cépages is part of Trilla's 4th edition of its annual fête.

Michel. It would be great to be there but sadly impossible. Will have to see what can be done for the second edition! Hope Saturday goes well!

I just noticed how much André Dominé looks like the American wine writer/critic Dan Berger.
