Good initiative, the most important thing is to create events that promote the organic production, the earth needs this and soon! Organic wines is a good choice to start the change and more things like this one should have take please in the different countries
Wow. Really? An international organic wine fair – that must have been HUGE! I would be really curious to see how it turned out, or if they decided to make it annual at all. That definitely is a super good idea, and I could see it becoming a very big annual festival. I would love to go to one someday.
