Our forthcoming trip to Vinisud, the Montpellier wine fair in February, seems to be attracting the attention of quite a few exhibitors. There are plenty of ‘meet us! try our wine!’ e-mails coming in, but yesterday I had the pleasure of a telephone call from New Zealander Rachel Treloar (good Cornish name - those interested in Cornish nationhood can click here) to tell me about Domaine Treloar. Her husband, Jonathan Hesford, was assistant winemaker at Neudorf Vineyards in NZ. You can read more about the Roussillon operation here.
I know we shall be very busy, but if I get the chance to meet Rachel and Jonathan on the fringe of Vinisud (they decided the huge expense of a stand at the fair wasn’t worth it) - I’ll let you know what happens.
