2012 Bourgueillotherapie: the winners etc.


 
Winner of the  2012 Bourgueillotherapie

Results and photos from the 2012 Bourgueillotherapie organised by Café de la Promenade, Bourgueil. The artists, who are attached to a domaine, are charged with producing a piece of work that will be auctioned off at the end of the day with the proceeds going to charity. This year there were 11 domaines involved plus a number of producers showing their wines at the Café de la Promenade. During Sunday we visited all the domaines.
