Millésime Bio is:
a trade fair established by the Inter-professional Association of Organic Wines from Languedoc-Roussillon (AIVB-LR), and tailored to wine professionals' needs, a focal point for the organic wine offer from all wine making regions and countries, the presentation platform for the year's new vintage,
a unique concept: ready-made, identical stands, the wine alone makes the difference!
(so none of my stand's bigger than yours syndrome found in other fairs - Jim)

The 3rd edition of Challenge Millésime Bio is an important event not to be missed!
