Millésime Bio, was created in 1993 by a handful of winegrowers from Languedoc-Roussillon members of the AIVB-LR. Their goal was to promote their products and the features of the new vintage to the purchasers. The event grew big, but don't worry the friendly spirit still remains. 2008 was the 15th time that 250 organic producers met in Perpignan. A wine contest was organised for the first time to better communicate on organic wines and promote their quality during Millésime Bio, the trade fair’s organisers have launched a competition specific to the event and 365 wines were tasted, 110 selected. 3 Alsace organic wines and also the Gewurztraminer Klur, you may order it at our online boutique.
