bioTfoule: Organic Touraine producers in Hotel de Ville, Tours – Saturday 21st - Sunday 22nd November

This coming weekend Salon des vignerons bio tourangeaux: – Hotel de Ville de Tours. 

Looks excellent – many producers whose wines I want to taste – some I know well, some I don't. It's free entry and just €4 to buy a glass. Tours' magnificent Hotel de Ville is but a short walk from Tours Railway Station.
