The end of May marks not only the imminent arrival of summer but a date that already shines in the calendar of oenology: LeWineLab. Launched some years ago by the well known wine experts of bettane+desseauve, it gathers all wine professionals on one single date. As in previous editions, the meeting will be held at the magnificent Carreau du Temple in Paris 3rd district, a great venue for a singular and prolific wine event.
LeWineLab is actually a perfect spot to find the right wine for almost any kind of budget. Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve have selected 150 wine producers from France, Italy and Portugal that will present 450 different wines. LeWineLab has many positive aspects, but probably the most interesting one is finding wines with a high quality/price ratio (a maximum of 15 € for wines, and 25 € for champagnes.) All these bottles are actually included in the so called Prix Plaisir 2017.
LeWineLab 2017 will take place on May 29th from 10:30 through 18:30 (last entrance at 18:00). As usual, it is an event designed for professionals exclusively (restaurants, wine stores, distributors, retailers, journalists, sommeliers, hotels and bars.) More info and inscriptions: www.bdwinelab.fr
